Learn how climate risks and opportunities could affect your portfolio - with just a few clicks
Climate change poses financial risks and opportunities for business and companies. Current business models and their strategic resilience are facing major challenges due to climate change.
Although the consequences of climate change can change the risk-return profile of financial investments, there is often still a lack of transparency and confidence about their potential effects and drivers. However, it is precisely this transparency that supervisory authorities such as the ECB, PRA, BaFin and other regulators such as the EU Commission demand.
