Addressing climate risks strategically

The impacts of climate change directly or indirectly affect everyone. For businesses, achieving compliance with carbon regulations can be a cost-intensive endeavor. In the financial industry, investment portfolios are exposed to risk from increasingly stringent climate policies. Customers, investors, regulators and the public sector are therefore pressing for greater consideration of climate change issues and contributions to mitigation actions. Lost income from unutilized carbon assets also constitutes a relevant risk. In this environment, the importance of a well thought-out climate strategy cannot be overstated.
