Carbon Tracker is a London-based not-for-profit think tank researching the impact of climate change on financial markets. Carbon Tracker popularized the notion of a carbon bubble, which describes the incompatibility between the continued development of fossil fuel projects and combating climate change.
The Carbon Tracker Initiative is working to align the capital markets with climate change objectives through a number of workstreams: 1. Assessing Systemic Climate Change Risk 2. Challenging Valuation Assumptions 3. Accounting for Impaired / Stranded / Sub-prime assets 4. Investigating the Capital Raising process 5. Exploring the contradiction between climate policy and markets
