Emerging trends in banks’ climate and environmental integration

It is increasingly evident that climate change will have negative implications for financial stability. Banks are being called upon to integrate and develop climate-related risk indicators and strategies.  This panel will discuss the implications of COP26 for financial sector commitments to net zero, the effects of climate change on credit and liquidity risk, as well as the latest developments in central bank stress testing and scenario analysis tools. Considerations of ecological and biological degradation are also increasingly high on the agenda, and panellists will consider the challenges and opportunities arising from assessing nature-related financial risks.
