The U.S. Department of the Treasury's Financial Stability Oversight Council established the Climate-Related Financial Risk Advisory Committee (CFRAC) on Oct. 3.

Peter Wilcoxen, Ajello Professor in Energy and Environmental Policy, is among the initial slate of committee members who come from a wide range of backgrounds, including the financial services industry, non-governmental research institutions, climate-related data and analytics providers, nonprofit organizations, and academia.

The new committee will provide information and analysis to the Financial Stability Oversight Council, an interagency group created by the Dodd-Frank Act that is charged with identifying and responding to emerging risks to the stability of the U.S. financial system.
