Understand both impact and dependency

According to the World Economic Forum,
“Over half the world’s total GDP is dependent on nature and its services and, as a result, exposed to risks from nature loss... As nature loses its capacity to provide such services, these industries could be significantly disrupted.”

Matter’s Nature Impact & Dependency enables investors to quantify the degree to which their portfolios are exposed to dependencies on, and impact towards natural capital, by analysing a company’s revenue streams and the location of its physical assets. This gets to the core of a company’s relationship to natural systems.

Transparent, asset-level insights

Sustainable finance at its core is about recontextualisation.

In the case of natural capital, that means understanding not just the total impact and dependency of processes, products and services, but also the location. Understanding natural capital impact relies on spatial specificity, as company impact is not spread equally.

Our method augments granular revenue data with location data on companies and their assets, utilising advanced geospatial data. the expert sources that we work with.
