About the Conference
“The important thing is to act now, get started and iterate your approach. Climate change will not wait for us. The longer we wait, the bigger the challenge we will face!"
We will discuss together:
1. What are the climate change risks and how to mitigate them?
2. Can we quantify the climate change risks?
3. Top-down v. bottom-up: which one is better for climate change management?
4. What are the climate change opportunities
5. Carbon accounting standards and automation solutions
6. Financial impact of climate change risks and opportunities
7. Decarbonization/Net-zero strategy
The ultimate goal for firms is to design and implement the governance approach for climate risks akin to established financial risks while addressing the climate risk-specific nuances where necessary. The differentiation between climate risk as a financial risk type, and broader sustainability / ESG risks should be clear. There is variation within the industry as to where these wider risks fit within a firm’s structure (e.g. second line, first line, or functions such as Corporate Social Responsibility teams). What is the best practice on how to address climate risks within financial institutions and not only? We’ll talk about implementations steps, errors to be avoided, differences across industries and geographies.
