Greenhouse Gas emissions: an overview of consistency among data providers

June 2024

In 2024, Meketa’s research team provided thought leadership on a variety of topics related to risk, such as concentration risk with our research “The Magnificent Seven”, country specific risk “Emerging Market Equities without China” or regulatory risk “Treasury Market Regulatory Reforms”.  In our most recent research on Greenhouse Gas Emissions: Consistency Among Data providers, we look at risks related to data inputs and sustainability factors, which some investors include in Environmental, Social, and Governance considerations.

As Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions have come into focus for some Chief Investment Officers, trustees, and other stewards of capital, questions have emerged about the available emissions data. Who are the emissions data provider(s)? What are the important differences between data providers? Why are companies struggling to report data? What are our investment risks as it relates to changing climate conditions? Changes to the regulatory requirements surrounding emissions data continue to heighten the importance of these questions and highlight the evolving landscape of industry best practices and legal requirements.
