The climate change storm clouds are threatening carbon Value-at-Risk – asset managers beware

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Chairman’s Blog

Just because, today, a carbon tax is either non-existent, toothless or unenforcible, don’t imagine that one will never be created, given teeth and enforced. The climate change storm is already rumbling and its pressure building steadily towards this inevitability – it may be next year, the year after, or the year after that. But prudent […]

A financial comparison of climate change impacts at 1.5C and 2C

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Blog

An article caught my eye recently: Scientists compare climate change impacts at 1.5C and 2C by Carbon Brief. We have some insight into the interconnectedness of extreme weather events and climate change, so we decided to take a look at the effect a 1.5°C at 2°C world might have on the expected financial loss and damage arising from extreme weather […]
