Published by IFCpublications
The challenges presented by climate change are magnified in emerging markets, where most future global economic growth will take place. In these economies, climate change is shaping strategies to increase access to energy, clean water, and other basic services for people who need them most.

As they channel investment, financial institutions have an opportunity and responsibility to take a leading role in mitigating and adapting to climate change. Institutions managing investments in long-term assets should consider the financial risks associated with climate change, as well as the opportunity to create value by working proactively with clients and stakeholders to manage the risks.
