Understanding physical climate risks and opportunities – a guide for investors

27.05.20

As the severity of climate change grows, the urgency for investors to address physical risks in their portfolios becomes more acute. IIGCC has therefore produced guidance for investors which sets out how they can integrate the risks and opportunities presented by the physical impacts of climate change into their investment processes.

Understanding Physical Climate Risks and Opportunities (also available to download below), provides comprehensive and practically focused full guidance on the topic. This is then supplemented by a shorter form practical summary guidance of steps for investors to take, which complements the core guidance report.

The detailed guidance is intended as a useful tool for investors which brings together useful case studies, frameworks and resources for investors who are making a start on assessing physical risk. Critical considerations and questions are provided at each stage of a generalised climate risk assessment process, which enables investors to shape physical climate risk and opportunity analysis that is relevant to their individual context.

Also see the press release here for more info and context to the guidance.
