Brookfield Asset Management Inc. is reviewing dozens of deals tied to climate action after Australian utility AGL Energy Ltd. rejected a multibillion-dollar takeover, according to the firm’s Vice Chair Mark Carney.

The Canada-based asset manager, which oversees more than $650 billion, has at least 50 potential transactions under review across a range of industries, Carney said Wednesday at an Australian Financial Review summit.
