The Near-term Impacts of Climate Change on Investors: Peter Huybers and Christopher Mayer

Peter Huybers, Professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences and Environmental Science and Engineering and Co-director of Harvard University’s Center for the Environment; and Christopher Mayer, Paul Milstein Professor of Real Estate at Columbia Business School, discussed sea level and coastal property.

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.
