The Dutch Central Bank (DNB) expects every financial institution to identify all ESG-related risks — including climate, biodiversity, natural resources, water scarcity, and human rights — and if possible, mitigate them. How can an institution accomplish this, and how will investors view the real-world impact?
Today almost everything seems to be promoted as “sustainable.” As a consequence, “greenwashing” has become a serious concern. What exactly is sustainability and how can you measure it accurately?
Financial institutions have begun to incorporate physical risks related to climate and weather-related events into their decision-making processes. They are also seeking ways to support the transition to a low-carbon economy and prepare for any potential revaluation of assets. Climate risk will present several unique challenges, with financial risks relevant to virtually all industries and geographies.
At the GARP Netherlands Chapter meeting experts will discuss how the financial industry can navigate these challenges and advocate for a smooth and orderly transition to a sustainable future. In addition, they will discuss how regulatory bodies such as the EU Commission have mandated that financial institutions address the potential impact of climate risk on their investments, resulting in a significant and wide-ranging impact.
Join our informative discussion on the real-world impact of climate risk.
