Climate change presents a significant challenge to global markets and economies, posing additional costs and risks to all parts of society. Against this backdrop, the financial industry plays a pivotal role in allocating capital towards more sustainable activities.
In a recent report “Climate Change Analysis in the Investment Process” published by CFA Institute, we examined how climate risks can be incorporated into financial analysis and portfolio management. The investment profession needs to incorporate these new realities into its analysis in order to help efficiently allocate capital in a world where the effects of climate change are increasing. Issuers need to provide timely, relevant, consistent data on climate change in order to provide investors with decision useful information.
In this webinar, we will present the findings of our research report and discuss:
• The economic and market implications of climate change
• Carbon pricing and recent developments in carbon markets
• The role of regulators / stock exchanges in promoting disclosures by issuers and in fostering greater transparency
