EEM clients will be interested to learn of a new framework published in August 2015 by the WRI and UNEP FI’s Portfolio Carbon Initiative. The Carbon Asset Risk: Discussion Framework proposes an approach that investors can take to consider the non-physical risks associated with climate change (such as risks linked to policy, market and technology) in order to develop an investment strategy to minimise their financial exposure. EEM’s knowledge of carbon and energy issues could serve your company in evaluating the carbon-related business risk for your company. Contact Stephanie Hamilton, VP Sustainable Business.
