We emphasize and encourage links between academic researchers and practitioners at financial institutions to bring theoretical techniques to bear on real-world issues.

Climate Change and Environmental Risk

Climate change is a critical global concern that presents issues associated with warmer temperatures, increased water scarcity, and more frequent and severe weather events. All these factors can threaten the financial sector and the economic security. The physical risks of climate change present a clear threat to operations, but new investment opportunities and product offerings are also needed to respond to the changing world needs.

GRI is engaged in expanding financial sectors understanding of climate-related risks and specifically in identifying proactive responses.
