Alicia Seiger is Managing Director of the Stanford University Sustainable Finance Initiative and Lynn Schenk is Director at the Business and Environment Initiative at Harvard Business School. They both served on the California Climate-Related Risk Disclosure Advisory Group. In this episode, Alicia and Lynn discuss the advisory group’s recent report, “Developing Climate Risk Disclosure Practices for the State of California.” The report offers 45 recommendations from 20 global experts to help California – already a leader on climate action – make even better budget, procurement, and investment decisions across its 262 billion dollar general operating budget and the 1 trillion dollar combined assets under management of its 3 largest pensions in light of the risks and opportunities imposed by climate change.
