Integrating Climate and Sustainability benchmarks into the financial markets ecosystem.
GRSS is an expert at providing critical financial benchmarks to the wider market. The future will see Climate and sustainability benchmarks reaching the same level of criticality.
However, for these benchmarks to be able to solve the problems that they seek to solve, they will need to be integrated into the fabric of the worlds financial markets, so that investors and companies can solve their own problems using financial products.
GRSS has been entrusted with collecting financial information from the worlds largest banks, and calculating critical benchmarks before distributing the data to information vendors, exchanges, clearing houses and financial institutions all around the world.
Furthermore, GRSS is a benchmark administrator and can ensure that climate and sustainability benchmarks meet the rigorous regulatory requirements of critical benchmarks. GRSS can provide the governance and regulatory processes and procedures, to provide credibility to the users around the globe.
GRSS is an independent company, meaning it has no conflicts of interest in using or exploiting the benchmarks it produces. GRSS’ only role is to collect, process and distribute benchmarks to agreed calculation methodologies, while meeting all regulatory requirements.
Collecting raw data on climate change
GRSS has been collecting data directly from a wide range of organisations including many of the world’s largest banks. GRSS has the technology and systems to allow the efficient collection of data under the highest standards of information technology security. GRSS is ISO 27001 compliant with all collection methods.
Calculation of climate benchmarks
GRSS has tried and tested calculation agent systems that calculate some of the worlds most trusted benchmarks on a daily basis. It has Help Desk capability to oversee the processes each day and to provide high level DRP options.
GRSS can calculate and distribute over 7000 benchmarks in real time or on a delayed basis via its Index calculation system specifically designed for new benchmarks.
Access to third party supplementary data can be provided if required, as GRSS has access to a wide range of information vendor data i.e. futures, FX, commodities
Distribution of benchmarks
GRSS distributes critical benchmark data on a daily basis to information vendors, exchanges, clearing houses, banks, corporates and private individuals on both a real time and delayed basis. These links are already in place and allow new climate benchmarks to utilise this infrastructure to have a truly global reach.
Licensing of benchmarks
GRSS has a specialist team that negotiates with users of the data, providing contractual access to the benchmark data on terms consistent with FRAND (Fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory). GRSS will be able to ensure that your climate benchmark has the widest possible integration with the world’s financial markets.
