New tool by IISD set to reveal the risks associated with infrastructure portfolio investments


A new tool by IISD will help policy-makers and investors assess the full cost ESG risks of infrastructure projects and portfolios across their life-cycle. 

Traditional valuation methodologies fail to account for critical social, governance and environmental externalities and, as a result, can undervalue potential risks within investment portfolios. In comparison, the assessment methodology called SAVi (Sustainable Asset Valuation), captures the full costs of these risks through using a combination of system dynamics and project finance modelling. 

The SAVi database is carefully designed to help estimate the financial performance of infrastructure assets and is targeted at both policy-makers and investors.
