The Carbon Rating Agency is a wholly owned subsidiary of the IDEAglobal group. Its mission is to improve the functioning and efficiency of the markets focused on energy efficiency, renewable energy and emission reduction assets.
The Carbon Rating Agency has benefitted from testing its suite of climate finance products with our long established sister company IDEAglobal’s extensive network of Sovereign Wealth Funds, institutional investors and investment banks and knowledge of how these organisations consider investments in new asset classes.
The Carbon Rating Agency provides a suite of ratings and analytical products covering carbon ratings, energy efficiency ratings and indices (amongst others).
The CRA has also built core components of the Climate Finance Platform. The platform hosts unique tools which enable investors to analyse and value climate assets with the same rigour and comparability to other asset classes.
The principle role of the CRA product suite is an enabler of climate finance, risk sharing between public and private stakeholders and for the construction of legitimate instruments necessary for this new asset class.
In June 2008 Lord Stern, alongside IDEAcarbon’s Founder, Shandi Modi and Chairman Ian Johnson, officially launched the Carbon Rating Agency (CRA). To view the video of Stern's presentation, see below:
