Senator Elizabet Warren has been pressing the eight giants of banking on what they are going to do for the assessment of the climate risks to the investment and the system of finance. The letters she has sent to the banks point out how the presidency of Warren is going to push the sectors of finance.
The Senate office had been rolling out the letter has been touting of the proposals for forcing the public companies for making disclosures in detail about the risks of climate to their business.
Warren has also backed the legislation for requiring the Fed to add the climate for the stress tests to the sector of finance.
