Carbon Asset Risk: Discussion Framework
WRI and UNEP-FI Portfolio Carbon Initiativeby and -
The Carbon Asset Risk Discussion Framework is a resource for financial institutions and was developed by WRI and the UNEP Finance Initiative in consultation with more than 100 energy, climate and finance experts.
This report provides objective, fact-based guidance to finance professionals for evaluating their exposure to the non-physical risks of climate change, called carbon asset risk. This type of financial risk is driven by non-physical factors during the transition to the low-carbon economy: changing public policy and private sector regulation, rapidly evolving technologies, unpredictable economic markets, and shifting public opinion.
