Climate Risk Technical Bulletin

The Sustainability Accounting Standards Board’s (SASB) Technical Bulletin on Climate Risk is designed to help investors better understand, measure and manage their exposure to climate-related risk. The research finds that climate change affects 72 out of 79 industries (93 percent of the capital markets, or $27.5 trillion) but manifests differently from one industry to the next. Due to the ubiquity of climate risk, investors can’t simply diversify away from it; instead they must focus on managing it—and on encouraging portfolio companies to manage it—in all its forms.
