Climate Risk and the Capital Markets
In partnership with the Climate Group and FINTECH.TV, The Nest Summit is an official event of Climate Week NYC, dedicated to advancing sustainability in the US by convening the organizations, visionary researchers, and influential policymakers driving climate action and leading the way to a cleaner and safer environment.
Climate change creates risks and opportunities for the private sector in emerging markets and may impact financial institutions’ performance and the companies they invest in. During the last 10,000 years, our climate has been very stable, and now is becoming unstable.

Spencer Glendon helps us better understand the fundamental risk that capital markets have with the inability to consider climate changes.
