By André Choquet

ANDRÉ CHOQUET, FCIA, FSA, CIM, RIS is Chair Climate Change & Sustainability Committee at the Canadian Institute of Actuaries
 

 

As I write these lines, the latest CO2 reading on the Keeling Curve stands at 419.27 ppm, the result of more than a century of an exponential growth since the start of the industrial revolution. The Keeling Curve is a daily record of global atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration maintained by Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego. And that’s not even including the rest of the greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere. It is one of many metrics actuaries should become accustomed to as the 200 signatory countries to the 2016 Paris Agreement are trying to create the policies, finance the innovation and incite markets to remove Green House Gas emissions from our economies and to limit global warming to 1.5C, at most 2.0C.

The population at working age (20–64 years of age), would shrink in all Member States as a proportion of the overall population. Whereas in 2019 people of working age represented 59% of the EU population, this share would fall to 51% by 2070.

Do you know what your Climate Model is made from?

By Russ Bowdrey and János Hidi

RUSS BOWDREY is Team Leader Client Servicing, Climate & ESG Solutions at Ortec Finance.
 
JÁNOS HIDI is a Sustainable Investment Manager at Cambridge Econometrics.

 

The climate scenario modelling ecosystem has changed considerably over the last 5 years. As the adoption of Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures TCFD guidance becomes widespread, and in places mandatory, it is arguably a natural point to pause to consider whether models used thus far remain appropriate, or whether there are more suitable alternatives.
