Updated Climate Risk Framework


In the summer of 2016, I blogged about Forum for the Future’s emerging thinking on climate risk and shared the first version of our ‘wedge-and-circle’ climate risk framework (which we use to build corporate and investor awareness of climate risk).

This framework not only illustrates the wide variety of risks that climate change poses (the wedges), but also highlights the fact that these risks do not just apply to corporate assets and operations, but also to supply chains, markets, and the public infrastructure – and even the social cohesion – upon which all companies rely (the circles).
