Plan Beyond the Horizon
Climate strategy and disclosure are about the same thing: making better decisions under conditions of extreme uncertainty.
Climate strategy is about anticipating the future and developing strategies that mitigate climate-related risks and seize new opportunities. Climate disclosure is about enabling investors to assess the credibility of firms’ climate strategies in order to inform their own decisions. Firm managers and investors each face the same challenge: making better decisions under conditions of extreme uncertainty about the future.
