Climate Financial Reform

We are holding insurance giants, big banks, and other companies that enable climate change accountable when they risk our financial well-being.

Take Action

In addition to being an environmental and public health threat, climate change can put all of us at financial risk.

For example: 

  • Investors could suffer meaningful losses to their reitrement savings and other investments if their portfolios are exposed to climate change risks created by insurance giants, big banks, and other companies.
  • Consumers could lose access to financial products and services, such as mortgages and homeowners insurance, in geographic areas hit by climate change-related natural disasters.

U.S. PIRG is educating consumers about the financial risks posed by climate change, and we are holding companies that enable it accountable when they risk our financial well-being.
