High Carbon Companies Have Lower Values

New research by researchers from the University of Wisconsin, University of Notre Dame and Georgetown University found that companies with higher carbon emissions tend to have lower valuations. Environmental Leader reported on the study here. The full study is here (for now; if it’s missing and you want it, please drop me a line).

This finding is consistent with what others have been suggesting for some time. A while back I blogged on the question of whether climate-savvy companies may better investments here.
