In this video, Elizabeth Jacobs of E3G explains how climate risk disclosure laws can help channel finance towards country climate goals. Climate risk disclosure laws allow governments to ensure minimum levels of transparency around how market participants identify and address climate risks (e.g., risks originated by severe weather events, technological innovations, and shifts in supply and demand) in their operations. Armed with this additional data, investors can make more climate-smart decisions in their allocation of capital.
