Socioeconomic pathways of carbon emission and credit risk

As the world is facing global climate changes, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has set the idealized carbon-neutral scenario around 2050. In the meantime, many carbon reduction scenarios, known as Shared Socioeconomic Pathways (SSPs) have been proposed in the literature. We aim to investigates the impact of transition risk on a firm’s low-carbon production. On the one hand, we consider a firm that searches to optimize its emission level under the double objectives of maximizing its production profit and respecting the emission mitigation scenarios. Solving the penalized optimization problem provides the optimal emission according to a given SSP benchmark. On the other hand, such transitions affect the firm’s credit risk. We model the default time by using the structural default approach and are particularly concerned with how the adopted strategies following different SSPs scenarios may influence the firm’s default probability. Finally we discuss possible extension of the model to a large portfolio of climate concerned firms and propose numerical methods to compute the cumulative losses. This is a joint work with Florian Bourgey and Emmanuel Gobet.
