Carbon pricing mechanisms are an essential policy tool to reduce GHG emissions and direct capital towards cleaner energy and lower-carbon solutions.
To help investors navigate carbon price risk, Trucost has compiled a dataset of possible future carbon prices that can be used to stress test each investee's current ability to absorb future costs. Integral to this analysis is the quantification of a Unpriced Carbon Cost (UCC)– the difference between what a company pays for emitting carbon today and what it may pay in the future.
