Climate Investing

Climate change poses many material investment risks across asset classes, both in terms of physical risks associated with climate impacts (storms, fires, rising sea levels, extreme heat, etc.) and transition risks associated with the shift to a low carbon economy (regulation, carbon pricing, clean alternatives, etc.).  Investing in climate solutions also hold the potential for enhancing investment returns.  IEN members are learning about and pursuing many fo the various approaches to and strategies for reducing climate risk and investing in climate solutions.
