With no way to assess the impact and risk of individual investments on the climate, investors are currently unable to make choices based on this important factor. The Greenhouse Gas Data for Investment Decisions (Sgreenvest) project is generating, quantifying and analysing the data to be used in potential products and tools that will give investors the knowledge that they need to make informed decisions.

Investors currently have no way of knowing the impacts and risk on the climate that prospective investments could have. By making information on the carbon materiality of investments available, investors will be more likely to allocate funds to climate-friendly opportunities. But in order to promote a new investment culture, comprehensive knowledge is needed on the climatic impact of investments. This information needs to be made readily available and easy-to-use across marketable products and tools.
