Global Natural Resources and Energy Transition

Q2 2022

As we have discussed for the past few quarters, rising rates, base effects, and far more persistent inflationary headwinds – the hangover from super stimulated monetary conditions post-COVID – are pressuring global economic activity and with it, asset prices. Unfortunately, we don’t think that we are out of the woods yet, as central banks remain behind the curve with both structural (higher long-term commodity prices, the impact of regionalizing supply chains) and cyclical (labor availability, inventory shortages) factors weighing down the outlook for growth and increasing the cost of capital.

The Path to TCFD Implementation for Energy Companies

In March 2022, the SEC proposed rules to enhance and standardize climate-related disclosures to investors. The proposal modeled recommendations off TCFD, lending regulatory firepower to the framework. Over 2,600 organizations globally support the TCFD’s recommendations, including over 1,000 financial institutions with aggregate assets under management of $194 trillion. To understand how companies are implementing TCFD’s recommendations, Pickering Energy Partners’ ESG Consulting team (we) gathered the publicly available ESG disclosures of the 64 S&P 1500 Energy Companies. These disclosures included ESG websites, ESG reports, and TCFD reports. We leveraged natural language processing and machine learning algorithms to understand the metrics and topics disclosed and the frameworks referenced. We then layered in data relating to third-party ESG ratings and scores, accessed through Bloomberg.
