Climate change is emerging as a major corporate and financial issue. Climate change is not a ‘future problem’ anymore. Global climate change has already had observable effects on the environment. Effects that scientists had predicted in the past would result from global climate change are now occurring: loss of sea ice, accelerated sea-level rise, and longer, more intense heat waves.
Investors and regulators, such as central banks, are taking notice. They believe that climate change presents a new systemic risk that is not yet fully understood. They are therefore pressing for more transparency through the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). Financial institutions therefore must develop an understanding of what climate change means to them, which actions they can take, and how they can report on their activities.
Participants will learn about climate trends, current policy responses, how climate change impacts portfolios, how to close the data gap, work through case studies, learn how to quantify climate risk, and apply the Climate Risk Sensitivity/Impact Matrix to your own institution.
