Bank of England Governor Mark Carney said the number of companies pledging to increase financial reporting standards to fend off risk from climate change has doubled in five months.
Companies with a combined market capitalization of more than $6.3 trillion have thrown their weight behind Carney’s recommendations on climate change disclosure, up from $3.3 trillion in June when the report was first released, according to a statement Tuesday from a task force led by Carney.
