Physical risks of Climate Change - A guide for companies and investors on disclosure and management of climate impacts

Description:

Investors and stakeholders increasingly expect companies to manage the short- and long-term physical risks (and, potentially, opportunities) posed by climate impacts—and to disclose important risks and risk management strategies, including disclosure in U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings. These disclosures should also address the risks posed by climate change to the local communities in which companies operate and source, as well as the implications of the ways in which companies manage those climate impacts, including for corporate reputations and community relationships. This document is designed as a guide to help chart a course for disclosing and managing such risks. Specifically, it provides: a) Publicly-traded companies with detailed and specific guidance on physical climate risk disclosure and risk management steps; b) Investors with guidance on the types of information they should expect of companies to manage portfolio risks related to physical climate change impacts. This guide should also be useful for the public and policymakers seeking to better understand the critical issues concerning physical climate risks and strategies to adapt to, prepare for, and become more resilient to climate impacts.
