We have just published the latest in the ‘gold and climate change’ research series subtitled ‘decarbonising investment portfolios’. This, the fourth of our climate-focused reports, builds on our previous work to quantify gold’s carbon footprint and its decarbonisation pathway. Combining these ‘building blocks’ has provided us with a fairly rounded and detailed perspective on gold’s relationship with climate change. We have now been able to examine, in some detail, not only the potential impacts that the gold supply chain might have on the climate, but also what climate risks and impacts might mean for gold’s performance and prospects as an investment asset.
