METHOD

Attributing material ESG risks to the company responsible requires:

1) spatially and temporally detecting where and when ESG-related events took place;

2) attributing events to the companies responsible;

3) quantifying emissions’ impact on climate, ecosystem services and public health;

4) modeling ESG-related data with fundamental factor models to reveal where explanatory power is added to traditional factors such as value and momentum; and

5) reporting data and insights to investors and traders in a format that is timely and actionable.

 

satelliteS attribute Point sources of INVISIBLE emissions with 50 meter RESOLUTION

Nano-satellites orbit the Earth in a polar orbit (north-south) while the Earth turns (east-west) below it, enabling measurement of any source on the surface of the Earth, within days. Methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2) absorb light at different wavelengths, creating a “spectral fingerprint.” High-resolution spectrometers measure the amount of light absorbed at specific wavelengths, which in turn enables quantification of CH4 concentrations. These satellite-based instruments take hundreds of thousands of measurements around a source with a resolution of tens of meters. Such high resolution is key to successful attribution of point sources.
