Document summary

This report presents an assessment framework to measure the hidden costs from seven risk factors under various scenarios and illustrates how investors could integrate this into existing risk and financial analysis. Building on these insights, Trucost recommends ways that policy makers could continue to address financial risks and opportunities through robust and consistent regulation and enforcement to encourage sustainable business decision making. This could provide a clear and effective incentive for businesses to consider environmental impacts in the management of their operations.
