Private Credit

Our solution for  private credit allows for credible and broad-based emissions reporting.

Overview

Private Credit managers are serious about their role in the fight against climate change. They have taken center stage alongside their Private Equity peers when it comes to measuring and analyzing the carbon impact of their credit investments. They play an incredibly vital role in the Private Markets ecosystem, providing capital to thousands of businesses that form the backbone of our global economy. They will play an equally important role in decarbonizing major industries and therefore need robust solutions to give them accurate and up to date insights on the climate impact of their investment activities.

Today, investment managers are increasingly called upon to disclose  the sustainability characteristics of their fund investments alongside their financial metrics. A variety of imperatives, frameworks and industry initiatives support this notion - including alignment to the UNPRI, the ESG Data Convergence Project, the iCI, the TCFD, etc. Coupled with adopted and proposed regulation from various jurisdictions in which their limited partners reside, it is often a requirement for an investment manager to understand the carbon footprint of its public and private investment holdings.

パーセフォニとノヴァタ社が”気候開示”を易しく解説

Persefoni enables carbon reporting across public and private investments. In an effort to better understand the approach to sustainability by  investment managers, virtually every limited partner investment diligence process includes an exhaustive list of ESG and climate questions. The expectations related to climate disclosure have shifted from qualitative to quantitative metrics and specifically Scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG emissions calculations. Persefoni’s solution enables investors to complete a broad-based portfolio carbon calculation using the Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF) methodology across its public and private investments. It can canvas a diverse set of investments like equities, bonds, loans, structured credit products, real assets, infrastructure projects and beyond. This empowers them to report their carbon footprint with granularity at the asset and fund level in order to meet limited partner requests. When you work with Persefoni, you have a team that understands the nuanced and specialized financial services industry. Persefoni’s Climate Management and Accounting Platform (CMAP) is built on our team’s collective decades of experience in carbon accounting for financial institutions.  Our industry-leading carbon accountants have deep experience in the financial services and sustainability sectors, and our strategic partnerships with Private Markets experts including Bain & Co and Novata have created offerings that are highly complementary to our solution.

炭素会計のパーセフォニと脱炭素化コンサルティングのウェイストボックスが業務提携排出量算出から脱炭素施策のコンサルティングまでを一括で提供

企業の脱炭素化が急務となっている背景として、地球温暖化が数十年来進行しており、このまま進行すると将来、災害の増加や生態系の変化によって、森林や生物資源の減少のほか、人類の健康や居住域に多大な影響を与えるとみられています。そのため、日本政府による2050 年までのカーボンニュートラル達成目標の設定や、東京証券取引所によるTCFD(気候関連財務情報開示タスクフォース)※の要請に即した上場企業の気候変動に関する情報開示基準の強化に伴い、企業や金融機関が 炭素排出量の削減への取り組みを進めています。

炭素排出量を削減する取り組みの基本は、炭素排出量の管理と把握、排出量削減目標の設定、脱炭素戦略の策定と実行を永続的に行う、脱炭素のオペレーションサイクルを構築することです。しかし、こうした取り組みに未着手、あるいは最近始めたばかりの企業や団体も多く、具体的に何から実施すればよいか分からない、あるいは着手していても、十分な知識やノウハウが無いため効率的に進められないという状況がみられます。そのため、国内外の炭素排出量の管理と脱炭素目標の設定におけるシステムソリューションを提供するパーセフォニと、炭素会計や炭素排出量に基づいた削減活動のコンサルティングにおいて日本のリーディングカンパニーであるウェイストボックスが、共同で企業や団体の脱炭素化を支援します。温室効果ガスの国際的な測定基準であるGHGプロトコルやPCAF(金融機関向けの国際的な炭素会計パートナーシップ)に基づいた国内外のサプライチェーンおよび金融機関の投融資先の炭素排出量の算出が可能です。
