This Primer provides an overview of contemporary evidence that climate change presents foreseeable, and in many cases material, financial and systemic risks that affect corporations and their investors. It then discusses:
general climate obligations in the jurisdictions where The Climate Governance Initiative is present though its global network of national Chapters;
how company law and directors’ duties in these jurisdictions require directors to incorporate climate change into their strategies, legal oversight, and supervision of the companies entrusted to their care;
disclosure obligations; and then
advice to directors.
