Climate Change Affecting Investment Decisions

investingInvestment decisions are increasingly impacted by climate change information, according to new research by the Carbon Disclosure Project.

Of the 80 institutional investors that signed the information request sent out by CDP, three-quarters said they factor climate change information into their investment decisions and asset allocations.

More than 80 percent of respondents said they consider climate change to be important relative to other issues impacting their portfolio.

Four-fifths of respondents said they found CDP data useful and valuable. Institutional investors cited carbon risk and potential legislation as the primary motivators for utilizing CDP data.

CDP says the number of investors that signed its 2009 annual information request for climate change data rose to a record 475, compared with 385 in 2008. This year, the request was sent to 3,700 listed companies. Last year, the nonprofit issued the request to over 3,000 of the world’s largest corporations.

One thought on “Climate Change Affecting Investment Decisions

  1. The fact that climate change is affecting our investment decisions, is all the more reason why everyone needs to become educated on the subject. A great resourceful book that I have used to help me become better informed is a book written by John Dernbach (along with 40 additional sustainable experts) titled, “Agenda for a Sustainable America.” The book is remarkably readable and easy to follow. Although the chapters are written by different experts, they are all understandable and accessible.
