What companies think climate change will have a material impact on their business?

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-...re-s-what-companies-are-really-reporting.html

From the article said:
Not too many, apparently. Roughly half of the 3,000 biggest publicly traded companies in the U.S. say mum?s the word, reporting zilch in their annual filings to U.S. regulators.

A new online tool makes it easy to find which companies are disclosing climate-change risks -- both the direct impacts to the environment and indirect risks from tougher curbs on pollution. The tool, created by investment-advisory group Ceres and CookESG Research, scours SEC filings of the biggest American companies, included in the Russell 3000 index.

Interesting that Bloomberg would choose to illustrate what U.S. companies report about the material impact of climate change, with a picture of the Facebook data storage facility in Lule?, Sweden.:cool:

Anyway: We are indirectly feeling the impact already: There is ever increasing requirements for improved energy efficiency from authorities as well as our own Group management, and those are directly related to climate concerns. That is part of the reason behind our ISO 14001 & 50001 registrations...

Sustainability by definition concerns itself with the long term performance. However, all of our financial rewarding behaviors focus on short term gains. So, most corporate leaders will do what is necessary to show short term performance.

Until they solve that riddle, sustainability (including the mitigation of the anthropogenic component of climate change) will be a cloud in the sky.

I suspect the most of it will be pervasive, indirect, and long term. So it's all magic eight ball answers for the moment, but the money will go where the clever folks who think a lot about long term planning hang out.
