Gathered here are resources created by our members on climate change and the financial system.

Mergers and Acquisitions

In the face of the climate crisis, there is now a need to evaluate how climate change affects the assets of the parties involved in mergers and acquisitions.

This video by Mark Shackleton provides a great overview of the challenges posed in this context. He explores the significance of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, decarbonisation and stock exchange indices, Taskforce on Climate-related Finance Disclosures reporting, concepts of trust and social licence, insurability of risks, where investment and divestment is taking place across investment, green-ness, greenwashing, and Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) strategies. Many thanks to Spring Week Summit for sharing the video.

You can also download a handout to accompany the video (see below).
