Identify assets that might suffer from write-downs or devaluation in the industries that move towards a low-carbon economy.
Future emissions from fossil fuel reserves far outweigh the allowable carbon budget that will limit global warming to 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. Industry experts refer to assets that may suffer from unanticipated or premature write-downs, devaluations or conversion to liabilities as 'stranded assets'. Trucost assesses exposure to such assets by showing the combined weight of holdings with business activities in either fossil fuel extraction or fossil fuel energy generation industries. This helps to identify potentially stranded assets that would become more apparent as economies move towards a low carbon economy.
