The Near-term Impacts of Climate Change on Investors: Adam Sobel and Stephen Weinstein

Adam Sobel, Professor, Department of Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics and Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science; and Stephen Weinstein, Senior Vice President, Chief Compliance Officer, Group General Counsel and Corporate Secretary at RenaissanceRe Holdings Ltd., discussed extreme climate events and reinsurance.

The 2017 Social Enterprise Leadership Forum—a joint effort by the Tamer Center for Social Enterprise at Columbia Business School and the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory—brought together climate scientists and business leaders to understand how new advances in climate science can inform investments in specific sectors of the global economy. The conference explored topics that address the value and opportunity of using a science-based approach to inform and guide business decisions.
