Join us as we celebrate the launch of 'Climate Risks: An Investor’s Field Guide to Identification and Assessment', published by Wiley. Financial analyst Bob Buhr delivers a risk-based framework for classifying and measuring potential climate risks at the firm level and their potential financial impacts. The author presents a “climate risk taxonomy” that encompasses a broad range of physical, transition and natural capital risks that may impact a firm’s financial profile.

Anthropomorphic climate change is a critical and rising threat to humanity. Despite this, denial and indifference to the issue remain deeply embedded in many communities, including much of the financial community. Numerous investors and other finance professionals remain unaware of the dramatic impact that climate change can have on a firm’s financial health, ignoring or discounting the very real risk baked into many assets.

Distinguished researcher and veteran bond analyst Dr. Bob Buhr delivers a practical and robust framework for classifying potential climate risks at the firm level. The book offers a climate risk taxonomy that incorporates a broad range of physical and transition risks that could affect a firm’s financial profile.

The toolset provided in the book enables banks, investors, and regulators to assess the relative aggregate climate and natural capital risk to which a portfolio or individual firm is exposed.
