Governments, corporations, the financial system and civil society are all key stakeholders of how climate change and sustainability challenges play out. In addition, they are key solution enablers by the way they make capital allocation decisions. The financial decisions that corporates and investors make today will shape the speed of low-carbon transition and prosperous growth.

Historically, we think that much of the corporate response to climate and broader ESG factors has been based on becoming operationally efficient.

However, as investment professionals are clearly reporting appetite for climate related investments, and social impact related investments, the demands on corporates to improve reporting and disclosure practices will increase – we expect an iterative process between companies and investors as thinking evolves on the ‘right data’ to disclose to assess climate risks and opportunities.
