Disclosure of a firm’s climate risk is now an expectation; investors are now expected to understand the implications of these risks. However, until now the focus has been firmly in broader macro economic sectors and much less so on the implications of climate risks for firms, or on defining the range of potential climate risks.
This has left practitioners with a skills gap, and little information on how to upskill and implement change in their firm.
Bob Buhr, Honorary Research Fellow at the Centre for Climate Finance and Investment, Imperial College Business School, will share practical and applicable insights from his framework: in Climate Risks: An Investor’s Field Guide to Identification and Assessment. Bob will present a taxonomy of potential climate risks to firms for financial professionals.
Event: 18:30 - 20:30
