New service offers critical data for portfolio decarbonization and shareholder engagement strategies
FFI Solutions, a leading provider of climate-aligned data, analytics, and advisory services, today announced the launch of their Net Zero Transition DataSet. This new data service enables investors and asset managers to evaluate how fossil-fuel companies are positioned for the transition to a low-carbon, net zero economy.
The Net Zero Transition DataSet extends the firm’s signature Carbon Underground 200TM (CU200) reserves emissions rankings by providing investors with more than 70 data fields that support investment, divestment, or shareholder engagement decisions. The initial release focuses on the 100 oil and gas companies in the CU200 and gives visibility into:
- Nature and timing of net zero commitments
- Fossil fuel revenue and production activity
- CapEx trends and CapEx alignment with IEA scenarios
- Fossil-fuel and clean-energy investment/M&A activity
Lynn Connolly, FFI Solutions Director of Research, said “The Net Zero Transition DataSet is a major leap forward in the evolution of our research and data services. With the global imperative to reach net zero by 2050, this new offering responds to customer demand for intelligence on the activities of the Carbon Underground companies and on their ability to align their businesses with a carbon-constrained world.”
Future releases of Net Zero Transition DataSet will include coverage of coal companies, additional oil and gas companies, and other sectors including power and downstream energy. The DataSet is the first in a series of planned net zero transition solutions. A transition metrics dashboard, now in development, will provide access to an even richer data set and will enable users to visualize and analyze fossil fuel company transition readiness and progress.
“Since our founding in 2013, asset owners and their advisors have looked to FFI as the standard for fossil fuel exclusionary screening,” stated FFI Solutions CEO Michael Palmieri. “Market dynamics have shifted because of the critical urgency to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions. No longer mutually exclusive approaches, divestment and shareholder activism, along with ESG integration and shorting, are part of a spectrum of tactics that investors can adopt to drive change in the energy complex. FFI Solutions is committed to providing investors with the transparent assessment tools required to make informed investment decisions regardless of the approach.”
