ESG Quick View: El Niño: a taste of climate risks to come?

  • El Niño conditions are now in place, with commentators offering predictions on what this may mean for the economy.
  • El Niño cycles are historically correlated with higher inflationary pressures as changing weather can impact crop yields, agriculture, and power – with this coming at a time when global inflation is already high.
  • Exactly how this El Niño cycle will play out is a matter of probability rather than certainty. In particular, uncertainty on how it will interact with the underlying effects of climate change- a central concern for scientists.
