Webinar: Climate Change – Identifying the Risks


Share

In the final webinar in our Climate Change series, we looked at the growing importance of climate change risk assessment in the business context. This isn't just about mandatory reporting, but how that data can be used, and how climate change risks should be addressed in corporate and property transactions.

Speakers from Trowers & Hamlins, CBRE and the Met Office discussed the general approach to assessing climate risk, the use of data to help manage transition risks, and how property and corporate due diligence is evolving to consider climate change risks and associated valuation issues. Key topics covered included:

  • Availability of data
  • Mandatory climate-related financial disclosures
  • General approach to assessing climate risk for business
  • How climate data can be used to help plan for the future
  • Likely focus areas for due diligence
  • Green leases and data sharing
  • Climate risk and the potential impact on valuation
  • Avoiding stranded assets

Speakers included:

  • Tom Butcher, Head of Research and Consultancy Propositions, Met Office
  • Nick Knight, Executive Director, CBRE
