Profile: The Carbon Tracker Initiative is a team of financial specialists making climate risk real in today's financial markets.

The organisation's research to date on unburnable carbon and stranded assets has started a new debate on how to align the financial system in the transition to a low carbon economy.

Carbon Tracker has pioneered independent in-depth analysis on the impact of the energy transition on capital markets and the potential investment in high-cost, carbon-intensive fossil fuels. 

Its team of financial market, energy and legal experts apply groundbreaking research using leading industry databases to map both risk and opportunity for investors on the path to a low-carbon future.

As such, it has cemented the terms "carbon bubble", "unburnable carbon", and "stranded assets" into the financial and environmental lexicon.
