Purpose and goal
The project has delivered a simple methodology to assess asset stranding at sector level, based on sustainability and circular economy trends. It has tested such methodology in 3 sectors: power sector, automotive sector and apparel sector. The methodology/results have been summarized in a final report and the main concepts have been presented to the financial community at events through-out the project. The bottom-up, asset-by-asset methodology has been tested with some of the project partners and their analysts, to ensure that it is understandable/useable by the finance sector.
Expected results and effects
The project has delivered on its designed impact model. A final report was produced, and importantly several dialogues/events have been held with the financial sector - ultimately the main audience of the project. The methodology has raised quite some interest, for its concrete approach of asset valuation linked to sustainability scenarios. The majority of the analysts we discussed the project with were intrigued by the ideas and interested in the large numbers of value at risk. The project team is satisfied with the impact and uptake of the methodology towards the target audience.
Planned approach and implementation
The project has been completed according to plan. By Dec 2017, the methodology had been finalized, applied to the 3 sectors identified at the start of the project and reviewed within our project partners organizations. The team has completed 4 outreach presentations. An extra dissemination event is planned at Swesif for 21 March 2018 (aligning with Sweisif seminar schedule)
