Climate change and climate finance: current experience and future directions
Analyzing the role companies can play in tackling climate change, this book shows how corporate values, responsibilities, and governance can affect their behaviors and investment decisions within effective environmental, social, and governance (ESG) frameworks. It assesses the issue of climate justice, considers the impact of “greenwashing”, and looks at ways investors can evaluate ESG considerations. It outlines the corporate and economic risks of climate change alongside the response from central banks. It shows that policy guidance, increased transparency, and information sharing are central for the private sector to make progress towards tackling climate change.
