ASCOR Tool Launch webinar


Assessing Sovereign Climate-related Opportunities and Risks (ASCOR) is an investor-led project to develop a free, publicly available, independent tool that assesses countries on climate change. Following the release of the ASCOR tool in December 2023, this webinar launched the tool and showcased research insights and market participant reflections.

During this webinar (held on 8 February 2024) , speakers introduced the collaborative project, presented the methodology and shared findings from the first assessment of 25 countries. Asset managers and sovereign issuers also discussed how the new ASCOR tool will benefit their analysis and decisions.
