The Sustainable Finance and Investment Seminar (CEE 157/257), led by Soh Young In, is a 1-unit course which aims to equip the Stanford community with the knowledge and networks required to undertake significant future work on sustainable finance and investment. The course is open to students, faculty, and staff in the Stanford community. CEE 157/257 meets every Friday from 8:30 - 9:20 am PST (with noted exceptions) during fall quarter (Remote: Synchronous). Students may enroll for credit.

In "Understanding the Analytic Chain of Physical Climate-Related Financial Risk: A Case Study on Extreme Heat and Electric Utilities" on October 7, Sadie Frank, Jeffrey Fralick, and Orianna Chegwidden introduce and discuss climate-related financial risk assessments, with a particular emphasis on how physical climate information is used in financial risk applications. They describe an ongoing research project focused on building out the complete ‘analytic chain’ of extreme heat impacts on utilities and the potential financial implications.
