Companies are under increasing pressure to disclose a wider range of environmental metrics as part of their corporate reporting, from carbon footprints to their exposure to extreme weather.

Some stock exchanges and investors now see these as core considerations when evaluating a company’s overall health, rather than a mere CSR consideration. What are the current global trends in carbon accounting and climate risk reporting? Will these lead to “stranded assets”? How do they vary across regions? Are they effective? Will stock exchanges and regulators establish mandatory requirements for such disclosure, and what would this mean for the energy industry?

Jeremy Leggett, Chairman of Carbon Tracker, will take part in this panel discussion during The Energy Summit, organised by the Economist.
