Podcast: Identifying Physical Risks of Climate Change for Companies and Investors
Bennett Freeman, Senior Vice President of Sustainability Research and Policy, shares his point of view on the importance of the issues explored in a recently released report from Calvert Investments, Ceres, and Oxfam America.
The impacts from the physical effects of climate change are being felt around the world and are creating serious financial implications for investors, businesses and the communities in which they operate. In this podcast, Mr. Freeman discusses the newly published report, "Physical Risks from Climate Change: A guide for companies and investors on disclosure and management of climate impacts." The guide focuses on improving corporate disclosure and management of the financial impacts of climate change on companies in the agriculture, food and beverage, apparel, electric power, insurance, mining, oil and gas, and tourism sectors—all of which are considered to be highly vulnerable to climate impacts—and aims to help investors make more informed investment decisions.
