Bridge House Advisors helps our clients assess climate-related risks and quantify their carbon footprints across their investment portfolios. By conducting carbon footprint assessments, Bridge House Advisors helps clients 1) visualize which portfolio companies are the largest emitters of carbon and 2) respond to LP requests related to carbon emissions. Similarly, using reputable sources and studies, Bridge House Advisors can identify organizations with a heightened transitional climate risk. By failing to keep up with policy changes, energy and economic transition, technology development, etc., fund managers may see lower returns if organizations are unable to shift towards low-carbon economy operations. Further, in-line with resources such as the Task Force on Climate-related Disclosures (TCFD), Bridge House Advisors helps clients plan for current and various potential future states through physical climate-risk scenario modeling.
