HSBC Global Asset Management (GAM) used the Planetrics model to analyze the risks and opportunities from climate action to a portfolio of equities, and develop insights that would enable it to incorporate these risks into the organization’s internal decision-making.

The Planetrics model generated climate scenarios, forecast potential climate action trajectories across multiple regions and sectors, and quantified the impacts of those actions on the value of individual securities. This provided HSBC GAM with a detailed assessment of the key risks to asset values, including asset stranding, direct and indirect carbon costs, and the impacts of competition between firms with different carbon intensities. The assessment also identified green opportunities and potential upside.

As well as using the analysis to inform its own decision-making, HSBC GAM published the outcomes of the analysis in a public report ‘The roads to a low-carbon transition.’
