90% of World’s Biggest Firms Will Have at Least One Asset Exposed to Climate Risk, Fresh Data Show

The fallout from climate change will be felt across industries, eroding asset values and forcing investors to make new risk assessments, according to a fresh data analysis tool launched by a unit of S&P Global. 

Over 90% of the world’s largest companies will have at least one asset financially-exposed to climate risks such as wildfires or floods by the 2050s, data provided by S&P Global Sustainable1 show. And more than a third of those companies will see at least one asset lose 20% or more of its value as the planet heats up.
