Report Finds Reducing Climate Risk Would Create New Business Opportunities
December 7, 2016 | Publication | Climate Solutions

A report from the Risky Business Project finds reducing the risk posed by climate change is both economically and technically achievable, and would create new opportunities for American businesses. The Risky Business Project, supported by MacArthur, identifies four pathways to a clean energy economy, each providing a distinct energy make-up: high renewables, high nuclear, carbon capture and storage, and a mixed case using all methods. The report finds that $320 billion in private sector investment is needed through 2050 to build a clean energy economy and achieve the emissions reductions needed to avoid the worst economic impacts of climate change.
