The Inevitable Policy Response (IPR) is a climate transition forecasting consortium commissioned by the PRI which aims to prepare institutional investors for the portfolio risks and opportunities associated with an acceleration of policy responses to climate change.


IPR forecasts a continued acceleration in climate policy to 2025, driven, in part, by the 2023 Paris Stocktake and the 2025 Ratchet. IPR assesses that those policy responses will be increasingly forceful, abrupt, and disorderly and produces in-depth scenarios to assist investors in navigating the financial, market and real economy uncertainties inherent in climate transition.
