Benchmarking upstream corporate carbon emissions and value at risk
Carbon emissions targets set by the Paris Agreement, together with potential policy changes, may have a material impact on companies’ asset valuations and long-term corporate strategy. With the risk of carbon costs emerging in a range of countries, understanding the potential value at risk in company portfolios is becoming increasingly important.
Our multi-client study 'Positioning for the future' will provide an apples-to-apples basis for comparing companies’ carbon emissions from their upstream assets and the associated risk to current valuations.
Subscribers will find answers to key questions on corporate carbon risk including:
- Which companies have the greatest exposure to upstream carbon risk?
- Where does a company’s exposure to carbon risk lie, whether by asset type, location or emissions source?
- Which types of upstream assets are most / least carbon intensive?
- What is the potential likelihood and rigour of climate regulation in a company’s countries of operation?
- Which companies are best positioned for a low-carbon world?
- How does a company’s emissions intensity (CO2e/boe) rank amongst peers?
- How could companies reposition their portfolio to reduce their carbon exposure?
- What is the potential impact of carbon pricing on the relative economics of future supply projects?
- What is the risk from carbon-related policy changes to the value of an investment portfolio that contains companies with upstream assets?
