Climate change will reshape every aspect of the global economy, from politics to migration, financing to supply chains. Business leaders are already grappling with the fallout. Companies must navigate the consequences of more frequent extreme-weather events. Markets are demanding greater transparency on the climate risks that firms face. So too are regulators: in 2019 the Bank of England announced plans for climate stress tests for banks. Such demands will only increase.

Ahead of COP26, the Climate Risk Summit in London will ask how climate risk can be better assessed and managed. Over two and a half days, The Economist will ask what role should governments and central banks play in embedding climate-change data into financial decision-making? How can companies overcome the first-mover disadvantage associated with publishing their risk exposures? Does technology reinvent the rules of risk management? And, how can the public and private sectors work together to combat the greatest risk of them all?
