Fossil Fuel Stranded Assets: Divest, Engage or Hedge

Trucost’s briefing note looks at how asset owners and managers are coming under increasing scrutiny to better understand and communicate their potential exposure to stranded assets, and how these concerns can be answered.

Trucost’s briefing note answers questions such as: can fossil fuel companies sustain their valuations? How do investors develop an effective investment strategy? What is the best way to address risk in practice?
