Preparing for Climate Risk
Business leaders, investors, and policymakers are increasingly aware of how climate-related risks impact companies’ financial performance and operational resilience. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), there have been 15 separate, billion-dollar weather and climate disasters during the first nine months of 2022.
How Has COVID-19 Changed the Way We Think About Corporate Emissions?
Both employers and employees have discovered that it is possible to be productive at home, and that the time saved from commuting is a valuable resource. With more employees working from home now than before, I started to think about what carbon footprints may look like for companies and how this has likely changed since their employees have shifted from company facilities to off-site locations.
Financial Due Diligence: Evaluating Environmental Opportunities and Risks
Over the past few years, we have observed a substantial increase in inquiries from Private Equity firms, Investment Advisors, and Mutual Fund managers seeking to better understand the environmental opportunities and risks related to investments in potential target firms. Providing advice in this area has become one of the most interesting aspects of ClimeCo’s Sustainability, Policy & Advisory practice.
