Physical Climate Risks

24th September 2020

Designing a resilient response to the inevitable impact of climate change.

The physical risks of climate change can no longer be viewed as a distant problem. Extreme weather and record temperatures are now understood to be events that can be anticipated and incorporated into investment decisions.

Physical climate risks are complex, but tools to assess and analyse these risks are improving. In the meantime, investors should make the best use of what is available and incorporate pricing of risks into investment decisions where analysis is sufficiently robust. 

We encourage others to join the conversation and support initiatives like The Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) that will ultimately integrate this key risk into standard investment practice, creating a more resilient financial system ahead of the inevitable turmoil of the next several decades.
