Hana Vizcarra: Climate Risk and Wall Street



U.S. financial regulators lag behind other countries in requiring corporations to disclose their financial risks from climate change. Hana Vizcarra, staff attorney at Harvard Law School’s Environmental & Energy Law Program, joins Charles Harper (YSE ’22) to discuss the financial sector, climate risk disclosure, and how courts and President Biden’s SEC can improve climate reporting. Hana contributed a chapter to the recently released book, Values at Work: Sustainable Investing and ESG Reporting, which explores how companies, investors, and regulators can respond to pressing environmental and social issues.
