GreenCap combines traditional banking metrics (RWA) with emergent climate science and international mitigation policies. It provides the means to put a dollar value on bank lending to non-green borrowers, in terms of funding the risk capital required to support that lending, combined with BIS compliant “green” stress testing and advisory service.
Banks’ current RWA systems and risk experts are not equipped to deal with the complex nature of climate risk calculations. It means that physical risk of extreme event is already miscalculated in their books. It also means that banks cannot accommodate transition risk: “brown” loans being already under-priced, while risk and price of “green” loans does not anticipate green incentives. Hence, banks cannot utilize their capital effectively and also cannot plan their green risk strategy as they can’t run green stress tests.
Unlock capital by breaking down loan book by its “greenness”: assess which parts of the balance sheet are most susceptible to climate related credit impacts and most likely to attract adverse RWA based capital increases over the sort and mid-term.
Green stress testing
Stress testing are non-conventional: business as usual, or minor adaptations are not enough for compliance. Handle the entirely new infrastructure induced by Stress testing climate-based modeling by using multiple climate related economic scenarios. BIS compliant strategies ensure the bank can remain profitable by either including the future funding costs in brown loans or targeting its funding towards the green economy.
Turnkey low risk deployment
Integrates with LoanIQ. Merges an out of the box solution with a deep expert advisory service.
