Climate Change Adaptation Market & Resilience Market: While public infrastructure is the most important and prominent focus of global adaptation and resilience efforts, private industries are increasingly taking climate change risks seriously—driven by their internal imperatives to avoid business interruptions or to satisfy regulators or activist investors like those in the We Mean Business coalition or some combinations of those motives.
As consultants report in the comprehensive 35-page edition of CCBJ, a great deal of climate risk and vulnerability analysis is happening behind the scenes under strict NDAs. Corporate managers want to be able to quantify their climate risks and have mitigation strategies in place before unveiling these vulnerabilities to the equity markets; or in the case of privately held firms, to lenders, private equity investors or potential acquirers.
But European financial regulators, environmental regulators that oversee mining companies in Australia and other regulatory authorities around the globe are also requiring more public risk disclosure, planning and risk mitigation for climate change, especially as it affects precipitation, flooding and water resources.
For public companies, climate risk disclosure moves from fringe demand toward mainstream metric as Investors and Regulators Ramp Up the Push for Climate Risk
