New Challenges: Quantifying and Offsetting Climate Risk

The climate emergency is an urgent global threat that cuts across sectors, industries, society, and the natural environment. As the world strives to meet the challenge of net-zero or net-negative emissions targets by 2050, momentum is growing behind efforts to decarbonise economies, industry, and infrastructure. Achieving these ambitious targets is fundamental to limiting warming of the planet to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels by mid-century.

The need for net-zero pledges to evolve into net-zero plans is clear and urgent under the emerging climate economy. Quantifying and offsetting physical, transitional, and reputational climate risk is a new and complex challenge for many financial institutions and companies.  Pressure is mounting from clientele, investors, industry regulators, and governments for an adequate and tangible response to the climate emergency. At EBS Advisory we hold a track-record of mitigating climate risk and maximising the opportunities in the shift towards net-zero economies.
