‘Spatial finance’ is the integration of geospatial data and analysis into financial theory and practice. Spatial finance leverages advances in geospatial data collection and data science techniques to allow for a truly bottom-up, asset-level assessment of climate and environmental-related financial risks, opportunities and impacts. It offers a new approach of understanding physical and transition climate risk, nature and biodiversity impacts, litigation and liabilities, stewardship and engagement, and potentially much more. In this session we will examine a series of case studies from practitioners and data and analytics providers. The session will have a particular focus on methane, deforestation, and climate resilience. The session is organised in partnership with the Spatial Finance Initiative.
