Where most data providers focus on how companies impact climate, Entelligent analyzes how climate change impacts companies’ investor returns.

Entelligent’s data and analytics approach is energy-based: It begins with top-down, forward-looking climate modeling to derive standard, interpretable, scalable metrics. Entelligent's patented methodology begins with climate science (including Integrated Assessment Models), then applies proprietary analytics, and only adds entity-reported data downstream in a controlled and visible way. This disciplined hybrid approach enables timeliness and predictive power, as well as backward and forward time-series comparability while maintaining financial materiality and supporting carbon accounting.

Entelligent’s approach is sector-agnostic, and the firm does not provide environmental, social, and governance (ESG) ratings. Its data supports sustainable investment by enabling level-field comparison of securities and portfolios.

The Smart Climate data and analytic suite includes:

T-Risk, which measures transition and global physical risk by estimating return spread between business as usual (BAU) and an alt scenario. T-Risk includes Carbon-Adjusted T-Risk, with Scope 1 and 2 emissions data applied as a penalty.

E-Score, which measures price return volatility for near-term climate transition risk (e.g., climate resiliency).

Smart Climate VaR, a value-at-risk calculator based on T-Risk.

Smart Climate Carbon Accounting, Entelligent’s Scope 1, 2, and 3 carbon emissions data feed.

Smart Climate Carbon Sensitivity, Entelligent’s proprietary model to measure carbon pricing impact on financial performance.

Data Overview

Asset Class: Global Public Companies

Data Frequency: Quarterly

Delivery Frequency: Quarterly

History: Data available back to 2006 

Forward Projection: Two year and 10 year (depending on score)

Data Methodology

T-Risk: Security-level measurement of the spread of expected returns between two climate scenarios: current policies and an alternative. This includes all Network for Greening the Financial System (NGFS) Phase III scenarios which reflect a broad range of policy responses and technology variations. Carbon-adjusted T-Risk is penalized by a company's Scope 1 and 2 emissions.

Coverage: ~39,000 global listed equities; emerging and developing markets; small-, mid-, and large-cap; two- and 20-year projections. Backtesting on 13+ years of data. Updated quarterly.

E-Score: A scalar measure (gauging magnitude, not direction) of a company’s resilience across minimum and maximum climate scenarios. The model analyzes the relationship between energy prices and historical returns to measure return volatility for near-term climate transition risk. The model begins with climate science forecasts (e.g., shifts in technology, economics, and policy), and measures energy sources' impact on stock prices.

Coverage: ~10,000 global listed equities; emerging and developing markets; small-, mid-, and large-cap. Backtesting on 15+ years of data. Updated quarterly.
