inevitable policy response stopwatch

The Inevitable Policy Response (IPR) is a landmark project to prepare financial markets for a wave of policy action as governments worldwide are forced to address climate change. Government action to tackle climate change has yet to achieve a fundamental economic shift, but as the realities of climate impacts become increasingly visible, governments will be forced to act more decisively. Yet, financial markets are not adequately pricing in climate-related policy risk.

News

Vivid Economics, Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) and Energy Transition Advisers are building an Inevitable Policy Response forecast of the impact on the real economy and financial markets from the effects of an abrupt, forceful and disruptive government response to climate change. This looks at the macroeconomy; key sectors, regions, and asset classes; and the world’s most valuable companies. The IPR forecast provides investors with a unique tool for navigating a complex, evolving policy and regulatory landscape – to enhance portfolio resilience and inform strategic asset allocation.
