Climate Risk Disclosure

Companies face enormous risks from climate change. The physical consequences of climate change could have both immediate destructive effects on physical assets, infrastructure, and supply chains, and long-term disruptive effects on financial markets around the world. And the transition away from fossil fuels could render products and business models obsolete and could cause hundreds of billions of dollars in assets to be stranded.

The Climate Risk Disclosure Lab seeks to support those in government, the private sector, and civil society who are working to address climate change and the risks it poses to the global financial system, through effective implementation of climate risk disclosure rules. The Lab is an education and policy development initiative created and led by the National Whistleblower Center, the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions at Duke University, and Duke Law’s Global Financial Markets Center.
