Climate Change and Sustainable Finance: the Shift From Voluntary to Mandatory Actions


Climate change and sustainable finance are increasingly urgent topics across the globe.


In this webcast you’ll learn how climate change and sustainable finance are rapidly shifting from voluntary market-led initiatives to mandatory regulation-driven actions. A panel of prominent professionals will share practical perspectives on how climate change and sustainability are becoming embedded in financial markets and risk management with a focus on physical risk.


Among the questions answered will be:


• What actions are financial institutions undertaking voluntarily?

• How are firms preparing for new regulatory expectations?

• What are the challenges related to physical risk and how can organizations adapt?

• How can we promote sustainability in the finance world over the next two years?
