They discuss the integration of the financial impacts of climate-related matters into companies’ financial statements and explore the results of Carbon Tracker’s report “Flying Blind: The glaring absence of climate-related risks in financial reporting”. They reflect how better transparency on this systematic issue can help investors understand the extent to which management have considered the effects of the goals of the Paris Agreement, and how Climate Action 100+ will provide information to help investors engage, vote or allocate capital more efficiently and effectively.
