The Intact Centre for Climate Adaptation at the University of Waterloo recently released a report on Integrating Physical Climate Change and Extreme Weather Risk into Institutional Investing. The report examines the strategic and financial impact physical climate risks have on businesses.

In this podcast, the speakers address some topics financial supervisors and regulators should consider:

  • the impact of physical climate change and extreme weather risk on the financial sector;
  • the state of global disclosures and frameworks; and,
  • tools available to reduce risk.
