Climate Exposure Tool for Financial Risk Analysis

Climate Exposure Tool for Financial Risk Analysis

Objective

CLIMEX will bring to the market an innovative commercial product based on the research output of the FET research Project DOLFINS, i.e. the “Climate-Finance Stress-testing”. The innovation will narrow the gap between our prior top level research and the market. By delivering a B2B commercial tool for financial risk managers, CLIMEX will allow them to price climate risks in their portfolio management strategies, thus filling in an existing gap on the market. In particular, our innovation will provide detailed quantitative information about the exposure to climate risks of individual firms and financial institutions’ portfolios, thus allowing them to improve their business and environmental performance. To achieve this goal, CLIMEX designs a 12-months Commercialization Roadmap that pursues a patenting and a start-up strategy and a commercialization strategy, and delivers a website and Software as a Service demo, together with targeted dissemination events with key private and public finance stakeholders with whom the CLIMEX consortium has already engaged in a business dialogue. CLIMEX’s disruptive positioning on the market is achieved by combining cutting-edge scientific competence across three domains in which the CLIMEX members are international leaders, (i.e. models of risk and contract valuation in financial networks, environmental economics, Software as a Service demos) and their knowledge and know-how when it comes to implement the methods on actual clients’ portfolios. The consortium will have access to professional advise on technology transfer via a dedicated organization at the coordinator node, as well as support from experienced entrepreneurs in the field of fintech.
