Our Chief Economist, Dr. Moritz Kraemer, discusses with Dr. Patrycja Klusak and Dr. Matthew Agarwala from the Bennett Institute for Public Policy at the University of Cambridge, how climate change impacts the creditworthiness of governments in the very long term.
The authors of a ground breaking study from Cambridge University will also discuss their “climate smart” sovereign credit ratings. They will show that climate change can be expected to impact sovereign ratings of rich and poor countries alike and that the decline would start within this decade. Their findings are not only highly relevant for long-term investors, but are also appropriate for regulators and rating agencies alike.
