Physical Climate Risk Analysis
Following the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) recommendations delivered by the FSB in 2018, there has been rapid uptake by industry and government recognising the need for disclosure of the financial implications of climate change.
It’s now widely recognised that climate change presents a material threat to business operations, investment portfolios and economic stability. XDI leads data driven analysis to address what regulatory bodies worldwide are requiring for the financial disclosure of physical climate risk. This includes direct impacts of current and future weather events, and stress testing of asset portfolios.
XDI works extensively with infrastructure organisations, property trusts, banks and investment firms to support climate financial disclosure in Australasia, Europe, UK and North America. As decision makers strive to expand the management of the issue, XDI is rapidly delivering the data that supports those needs.

For physical risk analysis:
RCP 8.5 is used to stress test assets or portfolios under a worst-case emissions scenario
RCP 2.6 is used for best case scenario
RCP 4.5/6.0 can be added for a moderate mitigation pathway

Global Scale. Asset Level Granularity
XDI starts with asset level analysis, specified down to component parts, then scales up to stress test whole portfolios for physical climate risk around the world.
“GPT wanted a deeper understanding of the potential climate related risks that are foreseeable for our fixed property assets. We used XDI to model our asset level physical risks and then work with our development and capital works teams to implement practical solutions to minimise the potential impacts. XDI is a key tool in our climate adaptation planning.”

XDI’s Top Ten TCFD Physical Risk Tips for Companies
With New Zealand making Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) reporting compulsory and the Canadian government linking mandatory TCFD reporting to corporate COVID relief, it’s the time for businesses to make TCFD a standard part of their risk management regimes. As former Governor of the Bank of England and current United Nations Special Envoy on Climate Action and Finance Mark Carney has said, all companies need to understand and use the TCFD system as climate risks increase.
