Remote detection of methane super emitters

Methane emissions are extremely deleterious to climate stability, and may be a key indicator of wasteful, inefficient energy businesses with poor governance. Super emitters, in particular, are likely to have above average exposure to legal liability, regulatory/compliance and reputation risk, as well as accidents. Therefore, the highest emitting companies may be candidates for short positions (or divestment) by traders and investors versus cleaner operating peers and alternatives.
Super emitter newsfeed delivers environmental risk data as signals to traders and investors – in near real time before it is generally known – in formats that seamlessly integrate with your workflow
Human or automated traders and portfolio managers can use MethaneScan™ in several different ways, including:
- Hedge fund, energy and algorithmic trading – Enhance rules-based strategies with automated circuit breakers which may anticipate price volatility and directional movements based on early indicators of methane emission anomalies
- Market making – Widen spreads or pull quotes when significant negative news impacting a given company or its peers is anticipated
- Engagement – Trigger efforts by large institutional investors such as pension funds and mutual fund managers to affect directional change at given companies or their peers via shareholder resolution, proxy votes, disclosures, or other pressures.
