Climate Change and the Transition to a Carbon-free Economy: Managing Risks and Harnessing Opportunities

This one-day virtual conference organized by the Business, Climate, and Environment Lab of the Wharton Risk Center will bring together leaders from the private sector, government, and academia, along with students, to discuss cutting-edge research and practice at the intersection of climate change, business strategy, and government regulation.

Climate change presents physical risks that may have a significant impact on financial, housing, and insurance markets. Climate change also poses transition risks, as the economy shifts to carbon-free energy sources. Emerging markets in carbon credits and for new energy finance create new opportunities for firms to promote a smooth transition to a carbon-free economy.
