Investing in a time of Climate Change

The report “Investing in a time of climate change” adopts a scenario-based approach to incorporate four climate scenarios and four climate risk factors (technology, resource availability, impact of physical damages and policy) within strategic investment modelling to examine the potential magnitude of the risks and opportunities across industry sectors, asset classes, and a total portfolio, between 2015 and 2050.

Key points

This study from Mercer helps address the following investor questions:

  • How big a risk/return impact could climate change have on a portfolio, and when might that happen?
  • What are the key downside risks and upside opportunities, and how do we manage these considerations to fit within the current investment process?
  • What plan of action can ensure an investor is best positioned for resilience to climate change?
