Carbon Tracker

Entity Type
Founding Date

Carbon Tracker is an independent think tank that performs scenario analysis and research on the impact of the energy transition on capital markets and the potential investment in high-cost, carbon-intensive fossil fuels. The firm's research is grounded in conventional financial analysis and focuses on forward-thinking material issues. This analysis helps the investment community better understand the financial implications of addressing climate change.

Carbon Tracker seeks to align the capital markets with climate change objectives through several workstreams:

  1. Assessing systemic climate change risk
  2. Challenging valuation assumptions
  3. Accounting for impaired, stranded, or subprime assets
  4. Investigating the capital raising process
  5. Exploring the contradiction between climate policy and markets
