Climate and decarbonization

The EY climate and decarbonization services help businesses respond to the physical and transition risks associated with climate change, as well as advise on how to operate in new markets and regulatory environments related to carbon and renewable energy.

What EY can do for you

The decarbonization imperative for business is accelerating. Organizations should actively respond to the possible physical and transition risks and opportunities of climate change. In doing so, they can limit exposure to climate-related risk and position themselves more favorably respond to associated opportunities. As pressure from a range of stakeholders focuses attention on these issues, they are increasingly being driven up the boardroom and executive agenda.

For directors and business leaders, climate risks and opportunities can be more than a reporting or disclosure matter. At a time when political will and global public opinion are focused on profound climate action, climate risks and opportunities should be front and center for organizations as they plan their future growth strategies.
