Intro - Geospatial
In a changing climate, physical risks and biodiversity are a critical financial factor, affecting not only companies but investors, insurers and banks. Understanding the exact locations and activities of a company’s facilities is essential for risk management, investment/lending due-diligence, regulatory compliance and corporate engagement.
MSCI GeoSpatial data provides critical spatial context, enables vulnerability mapping, aids in trend analysis, supports risk modeling and guides resilient infrastructure planning, helping you better understand and mitigate climate-related risks.
Acquiring asset-level data, especially data tied to issuers, can be challenging.
MSCI’s GeoSpatial dataset is built by integrating manual web-scraping collection and enhancing/triangulating multiple third-party sources, all within the framework of a stringent verification process to ensure the highest levels of data quality.
