A Tipping Point: Investors Prompt Companies to Disclose and Manage Climate Risk

New York City Comptroller Scott M. Stringer, California Controller Betty T. Yee, and the 50/50 Climate Project are hosting an invitation-only conversation during NYC Climate Week.

The Paris Climate Agreement set the stage for global action to combat climate change and pave the way toward a low‐carbon economy. The role of non‐state actors, such as institutional investors, will be instrumental if we are to achieve the objectives of the Paris Climate Agreement. The shareholder upheaval earlier this year, in which proposals for disclosure of the impact on a company’s business under a 2-degree scenario passed at several companies, may be the tipping point.

On Monday, September 18th, Scott M. Stringer, Betty T. Yee, Edward Kamonjoh, Executive Director of the 50/50 Climate Project and Michael Garland, Assistant Comptroller for Corporate Governance and Responsible Investment, New York City Comptroller’s Office will engage in a conversation on investors’ strategies and successes to prompt companies to manage climate risk and identify new business opportunities.

This event is invite only.
