The climate crisis poses a systemic risk that affects the stability and competitiveness of U.S. financial markets. Regulators who are responsible for safeguarding this stability should address and act on climate change. Ceres’ newly released report “Addressing climate as a systemic risk” outlines a series of action steps that can be taken by U.S. financial regulators right now to address climate change as a part of their existing mandates.

We will answer:

  • How do US financial regulators compare with central bankers and regulators around the globe?
  • What is the role of federal and state financial regulators to address climate risks?
