Sustainable finance is key to a resilient future.
The finance sector is a critical leverage point for positive change. Through availability of credit and cost of capital, the finance sector shapes the structure of the economy.
The coming decades will bring new types of risks and opportunities for financial institutions. We work to support these institutions in making more sustainable decisions, by assessing both risks and impacts across multiple areas, as well as guiding investments towards new circular economic opportunities.
How we can help
We work with financial institutions in the transition to a circular and sustainable economy. We can help organizations understand and mitigate risks from environmental impacts, and create new, innovative forms of sustainable value.
Real Estate: Automated sustainability assessments of real estate portfolios
We developed an indicator framework that allows financial institutions to automatically assess the sustainability performance of a property before they decide to invest.
Value-at-Risk from Environmental Impacts
Together with WWF, Metabolic developed an innovative approach to understanding the financial risks to asset managers from complex sustainability impacts in the Blue Economy
Impact Measurement: Scope 3 portfolio impact assessment
We helped a financial institution evaluate the Scope 3 impact savings resulting from financed circular businesses within the portfolio.
Sustainable Finance: Science-Based Targets for Finance
Together with, PGGM, a Dutch pension fund, we developed a set of indicators to evaluate an investment portfolio on science-based targets and circular economy performance.
We worked with a leading Dutch insurance company to develop circular insurance products, using systems thinking and impact assessment techniques to identify the most promising ones for implementation.
