Ceres releases the report "Financing a Net-Zero Economy: Measuring & Addressing Climate Risk for Banks" on October 19, 2020. The new report provides an illustrative analysis of U.S. banks' exposure to and potential losses from climate risk resulting from their financing. The report's key recommendations focus on how banks can better assess and disclose this risk, develop and improve related tools and methodologies, and ultimately act to mitigate climate risk to the financial system and the associated broader societal impact.
