Climate change: redefining the risks using Carbon VaR

Climate risks will be significant and inescapable. We're concerned that investors are focused more on urging action than developing risk management solutions. With nearly 20% of corporate earnings potentially depleting to meet carbon price targets, we introduce Carbon VaR as a new tool to manage climate risks. Measuring and managing the investment risks is both critical and complex. Carbon pricing will be a key element of the policy changes ahead, if global political commitments are to prove realistic. The tools the majority of investors rely on most heavily do not fully capture those risks. In our view, Carbon VaR is a significant step forward to helping us navigate the challenges ahead.
