Get deep insights on climate risk and opportunity

Climate change is increasingly visible and disruptive, yet for most corporations and financial institutions climate risk is a blind spot.

The link between climate change and credit risk

Since the Paris Agreement entered into force on November 4, 2016, 180+ parties 2 have committed to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon economy by enacting a variety of policies, such as the introduction or increase of a carbon tax. These transition efforts will likely require an unprecedented level of investment over the next decades. This may contribute to the onset of a new type of financial risk that could have negative effects on a company’s financial performance by eroding liquidity needed to service short- and long-term debt commitments.
