Climate risk governance

We connect the dots between climate change, financial consequence and legal risk.

 

Climate risk is an issue facing all businesses – no matter the location, sector or product. It has evolved from a purely 'ethical' 'environmental' issue to have mainstream recognition as a material financial risk across physical, economic transition and litigation dimensions. For both corporate and public sector entities, regulatory and investor expectations on climate risk assessment and disclosure are accelerating, posing both risks and opportunities that need understanding, assessment and appropriate action. Increasingly, a strategic, rather than compliance-focused, approach to climate risk governance translates to commercial advantage in dealings with customers and investors.

The regulatory landscape

Since the Paris Agreement was signed in 2015, governments and corporates have accelerated their journey to reduce their carbon footprint. As regulatory bodies, investors and private companies globally respond, the momentum towards achieving ‘net zero emissions’ in the global economy before 2050 is building.
