The carbon bubble and the pricing of bank loans


Ongena, Steven; De Greiff, Kathrin; Delis, Manthos D. (2018). The carbon bubble and the pricing of bank loans. London: VoxEU.org / CEPR.

Abstract

Neglecting the possibility that fossil fuel reserves can become ‘stranded’ could result in a ‘carbon bubble’ as fossil fuel firms become overvalued. This column studies whether banks price the climate policy risk of fossil fuel firms. Prior to 2015, banks did not appear to price climate policy risk. After 2015, however, the risk is priced to a certain extent, especially for firms holding more fossil fuel reserves.
