Policy Integrity and Partners Form New Initiative on Climate Risk and Resilience Law

As the climate crisis intensifies, it is crucial that policymakers strengthen protections from the dangers of climate change to our nation’s financial system and the millions of people who rely on it to sustain the American economy. The Institute for Policy Integrity, alongside several partners, has founded the Initiative on Climate Risk and Resilience Law to advocate for smarter policies on this issue.

The initiative brings together experts from Policy Integrity, Columbia Law School’s Sabin Center for Climate Change Law, the Environmental Defense Fund, and Vanderbilt Law School to advance legal solutions that address societal and economic risks from climate change and to improve climate resilience, including in our financial sectors. ICRRL’s work formally got underway with the launch of its new website and with a Securities and Exchange Commission filing detailing its recommendations for climate change disclosure for businesses.
