6 mins 5 secs

Overview

We have established that climate risks are indeed financial risks and that financial institutions need to identify, assess, mitigate and manage these risks. Additionally they need to be aware of the main trends and developments in this space. This includes the regulatory developments in their respective jurisdiction as well.

Key learning objectives:

  • Understand the key trends and developments in climate risk assessments

  • Outline the main global developments within the climate risk landscape

  • Outline the main EU developments within the climate risk landscape

Summary

What are the 5 main trends and developments in the climate risk landscape?


1. Growing integration of different forms of Climate Risks within the Tools
2. Updated scenarios and a growing focus on net-zero commitments
3. Improved data availability and greater transparency 
4. AI-empowered analysis and new ML-based methodologies
5. Development of more user-friendly and purpose-built tools to meet disclosure and regulatory needs 

Why should financial institutions be aware of these trends and developments?


Net zero has become a global consensus and financial institutions are facing rising expectations to support the transition. This requires financial institutions to change business models, update strategy and manage risks effectively. Regulators are looking at new disclosure regulations and policymakers are pushing towards net zero goals. Enhanced management of social and environmental impacts, improved transparency through disclosure and reporting, and the setting of interim and long-term targets is becoming imperative. Hence, understanding and assessing climate risks and opportunities is of utmost importance.

What are some of the main developments in the climate risk landscape globally?


–  TCFD recommendations (Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures) -Has put out 11 recommendations, used by more than 4000 organisations in over 100 countries.

– SBTi (Science Based Targets Initiative) - Helps validate targets and ensures both the general and sectoral decarbonisation targets are in line with the latest science.

– Sustainability Disclosure Standards - This is being developed by the ISSB and looks to harmonise existing sustainability standards across regulators and jurisdictions.

What are some of the main developments specifically in the EU?


– CSRD (Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive) and the ESRS (European Sustainability Reporting Standards)

– EU Taxonomy - Provides definitions of ‘green’ investments

– SFDR (Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation) - Covers categorisation of financial products into different green asset classes and requires the setting of ‘robust’ transition plans
