This is a really complex issue, but an October 28 Issue of Science had an article that I found clearly explained these risks as they apply to large corporation, especially in energy industries.

Investors have known about climate change for decades. Yet it is only recently that several countries—including France, Japan, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom—have developed policies requiring large public companies to regularly disclose information about climate-related financial risks. In March 2022, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) proposed a climate disclosure rule that, distinctively, would affect all firms publicly traded in the United States regardless of their size or country of incorporation. With the policy’s broad scope, the large size and exceptional liquidity of the US financial market, and the SEC’s influence on securities regulations worldwide, this presents a major opportunity.
