Corporate Climate Risk: Assessment, Disclosure, and Action

  • Date: April 1, 2020
  • Time: 9:00am–3:00pm
  • Location: Rosenthal Pavilion | NYU Kimmel Center | 60 Washington Square S, New York, NY 10012

This event has been postponed. We’re hoping to reschedule in the coming months.

An increasing number of financial experts caution that markets may not be accurately incorporating climate-change related risks into asset prices. This conference draws together investors, companies, researchers, and regulators to ask whether this is true and what can be done to better evaluate the costs of both physical and transition risks. What information, techniques, and expertise are employed by industry leaders? A number of countries have begun to require mandatory assessment and disclosure of climate risks. Is a similar regulatory response needed in the United States and what would it look like?

Co-hosted by the Institute for Policy Integrity and the Volatility and Risk Institute at NYU Stern School of Business.

CLE credit is available.
