The ESRA Advanced Workshop seeks to:

  • Better understand environmental and social risk in lending using a case study methodology.
  • Better understand environmental and social risk exposure depending on the type of financing offered.
  • Develop awareness of potential aggregate risk across different lending products in a bank / banking group, especially in relation to a given sector and its supply chain.
