WATCH: #SustyTalk Live - Persefoni and Denstu International on climate date and disclosure

BlackRock’s Fink: ‘It’s not our place to be environmental police’
His 2023 letter is likely to provoke similar reactions. For example, Kentaro Kawamori, CEO and Co-Founder of Persefoni, said: “Larry Fink is exactly right when he says ‘climate risk is investment risk.’ But, we go a step further and say ‘climate risk is financial risk.’ It’s business risk. The transition to a low-carbon economy requires companies to think about carbon with the same rigor as their financials in terms of how it’s tracked, used, and disclosed.”
Climate Disclosure is Going Through a Regime Change
Voluntary corporate reporting for climate-related disclosure is undergoing a shift toward regulation-driven reporting. Understanding the current global frameworks, as well as establishing internal carbon accounting capabilities, will help business leaders prepare for a seamless transition to this new reporting landscape.
