Aren't transition risk and carbon intensity the same?

Answer

No, they are not the same, but carbon intensity can be a measure of transition risks. Indeed, carbon intensity is the ratio of carbon emissions to a measure of production (e.g., revenues) or investment (e.g., net asset value) of a company. A high carbon intensity thus indicates a higher reliance of a company on carbon emissions in its operations, and thereby a higher sensitivity to carbon taxes and a higher exposure to transition risks.
