Bridging Climate Science and Investing
First-of-its-Kind Climate Change and Impact Investment Curriculum
AB’s investment professionals are collaborating with climate experts at Columbia University’s Earth Institute to translate climate science into investment analysis. This initiative has produced a first-of-its-kind climate change and impact investment curriculum, “Climate Science and Portfolio Risk.” The coursework fills a major industry need for asset managers to dig deeper into the complexities of climate change and how it impacts economic and financial outcomes. The classes cover the risks of global climate change—including rising sea levels—and predictive modeling for extreme weather, wildfires and other threats from a warming planet. The ultimate goal is to better understand the impacts of climate change and apply this understanding to investment decisions. We’re thrilled to partner with the Earth Institute in applying climate science to drive better outcomes.
