Webinar: Hear from participants in UNEP FI’s pilot implementing TCFD Recommendations with 16 banks

14 August 2018

This webinar will discuss the results of a collaboration between sixteen of the world’s leading banks with UN Environment Finance Initiative (UNEP FI), and climate risk and adaptation advisory firm Acclimatise. The banks set out to develop and test a widely applicable scenario-based approach for estimating the impact of climate change on their corporate lending portfolios as recommended by the Recommendations of the Financial Stability Board’s Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).

The webinar will focus on the physical-related risk and opportunities, which is the risk resulting from climate variability, extreme events and longer-term shifts in climate patterns, and constitutes the second in a two-part series publishing both the physical risk and transition risk assessment methodologies developed through the Working Group’s collaboration.

Hear directly from the banks, climate consultants and UNEP FI secretariat involved in this project.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
