Harnessing The Power of Public Capital Markets


  • Growing public and regulatory pressure is increasing the availability of climate risk data and analytical tools, as evidence of financial materiality accumulates.
  • These developments are elevating asset managers’ ability to quantify risks and opportunities in security analysis, supporting their efforts to maximize risk-adjusted returns.
  • Incorporating climate risks in investment analysis is likely to raise pressure on public companies to reduce their carbon footprint.
  • In turn, changing corporate behavior can help to bridge the estimated $1 trillion to $2 trillion gap in annual funding needed to combat the most damaging impacts of climate change.
