How can investors capitalise on risks and opportunities associated with climate change regulation? The French Energy Transition Law, effective since January 2016, will potentially have ground-breaking implications for climate change. The law sets out a roadmap to mitigate climate change and diversify the French energy mix, marking a turning point in carbon reporting for institutional investors, as well as in strengthening mandatory carbon disclosure requirements for listed companies.
The law has already picked up interest across the globe, which can be attributed to its pioneering nature. It is therefore recommended that signatories around the world understand how they could respond to such a law, including by measuring and disclosing their emissions exposure.
