The Effects of International Climate Policy on Financial Markets

Project: Other

Project Details


This project aims to develop and test a new methodology to determine the potential consequences of effective climate change action for the asset values of fossil-fuel firms. Taking into consideration policy signals from the UN
Climate Change Meetings such as the Paris Agreement, this project attempts to determine whether the market was already factoring in a significant probability of effective action on climate change, and whether this impacted firm value. The project intends to provide an assessment of risk associated with stranded assets to policymakers and executives in fossil-fuel and carbon-intensive sectors, and seeks to develop data, models and new analytical approaches that contribute to valuing environmental risk factors.
