Integrating Climate Risk into Corporate Governance

Excerpt >>>

Since the introduction of the Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), there has been increased scrutiny of corporate climate governance and broader associated risks. Investors have increased their focus on climate risk, as governance mechanisms are likely to be impacted by transition and physical risk challenges[i].

Sustainalytics’ ESG data shows that companies are facing increased risk from controversies relating to environmental and social issues such as community relations problems and resource overuse. The root cause is mismanagement and lack of governance around physical and transition risk provoking non-climate related controversies in the form of Social and Governance risks.
