The cen­tral bank gover­nor, who also leads the Fi­nan­cial Sta­bil­ity Board ad­vis­ing the Group of 20 na­tions, also won the back­ing of more than 100 chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cers for his cam­paign to in­crease fi­nan­cial re­port­ing stan­dards on is­sues re­lated to the en­vi­ron­ment. That trans­parency, he said, would help in­vestors un­der­stand how ris­ing tem­per­a­tures will af­fect com­pany per­for­mance.
