The climate change storm clouds are threatening carbon Value-at-Risk – asset managers beware

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Chairman’s Blog

Just because, today, a carbon tax is either non-existent, toothless or unenforcible, don’t imagine that one will never be created, given teeth and enforced. The climate change storm is already rumbling and its pressure building steadily towards this inevitability – it may be next year, the year after, or the year after that. But prudent […]

Carbon Pricing Projections that are doomed – except for the last man standing

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Chairman’s Blog

On the day (June 1st 2017) that the US announced it is pulling out of the Paris COP21 Agreement, we look at the patchwork of carbon pricing projections in the public domain that are doomed. The EU ETS is not fit for purpose. The UK’s ‘official’ (BEIS) ‘curves’ are not only straight lines, counter-intuitively, they […]

Stranded assets: do they have a future?

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Chairman’s Blog

For a classic example of stranded assets, look no further than the ‘proved reserves’ i.e. oil in the ground, which feature in the annual reports of major oil companies.  Whilst adding apparent value to the corporate share price, their true worth is at significant risk from carbon liability. Why? Because the days of emitting carbon dioxide […]
