Politics & Policy: Sustainability Measures and Physical Risks

Thursday, March 30, 2023 at 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM (EST)

Global governments have experienced sustainability policy shifts following the rise of environmental, social and governance issues illuminated during the pandemic. These policies are aimed to empower public and private sector industries to establish economic resilience, in several key sectors, including supply chain, commodities, agriculture and capital markets. For governments the effects of climate change will increasingly exacerbate risks to national security interests, through physical impacts that could cascade into security challenges, impacting how countries respond to the climate challenge.  

The Intelligence Community (IC) speculates that all risks will increase and that no country will be spared from challenges directly related to climate change. The Biden Administration has identified three categorical risks, as: increased geopolitical tension, cross-border geopolitical crises due to the physical effects of climate change between sovereign nations taking steps to secure their interests; and climate effects straining country-level stability in select countries and regions.  

Join us for live for an interactive panel discussion with cross-divisional experts across Market Intelligence, as we examine the strategic risks of environmental shifts to better understand subsequent financial and credit risks for both regulatory bodies and members of the Intelligence Community, with insights on the implications of these risks. 

Attendees of this event will gain insights into the following: 

  • Exploration of security risks posed by instability and geopolitical impacts 
  • Examination of sustainability research and physical risk implications for global governments
