Key Carbon Risk Metrics

Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide Concentration

This is the most recent months reading of atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration measured by NOAA at the Mauna Loa Observatory, Hawaii.


Global Electricity Generation Carbon Intensity

This is the carbon intensity of the fuel mix currently used for global electricity generation as calculated by PALcarbon.


Rate of Carbon Dioxide Emissions

This is the current estimated rate of carbon dioxide emissions based on Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center (CDIAC) data.


Global Surface Temperature Anomaly

This is the most recent daily global surface temperature anomaly reading based on PAL and NOAA data sets.


Event Attribution Rate

This is the proportion of worldwide loss events that may be attributable to anthropogenic climate change and is calculated by PALs Loss Claims Algorithm (PALca).


Rate of Worldwide Loss and Damage Attributable to Carbon Emissions

This is the current estimated rate of loss and damage attributable to carbon emissions.


Carbon Loss Index (CLIX)

This is the current cost of loss and damage attributable to current carbon emissions. This Carbon Loss Index (CLIX) places an independent, science based, quantitative external cost on each tonne of carbon dioxide emitted today.


Carbon Liability to Earnings and Assets Ratio – FTSE 100

This is the ratio of direct greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions liability to earnings for the FTSE 100 group of companies using PAL’s CLEAR risk measure.
