The provision of sustainability-related information on financial products will be critical.

Financial institutions feel pressure from investors, regulators and stakeholders to demonstrate more sustainable performance, and this can often lead to greenwashing. Aside from that, recent studies show that the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is not happening quickly enough. Many organizations lack an accurate overview of their emissions, as well as the guidance, information and tools they need to take action.

An understanding of your financed emissions data builds the foundation for a sound net-zero strategy. The SpheraCloud Financed Emissions solution enables you to easily measure, manage and report the GHG emissions of your financial portfolios, aligned with standards such as PCAF, CDP, TCFD and SBTi.

Ensure your portfolio shows sustainable performance and retains access to future capital to protect your market share.

The call for ESG metrics and visible climate action (for example, net-zero goals or science-based targets) is growing. An accurate measurement of your financed emissions helps you perform scenario analysis, set net-zero targets and take real corrective actions for change.

With Sphera’s Financed Emissions solution, you can plan, build and execute portfolio strategies; set targets based on scenario analysis; and track outcomes.
