In this special webcast, the GARP Risk Institute returns to the foundational knowledge areas of climate risk, offering a comprehensive introduction to climate risk and how it is managed. Incorporating insights from over 4 years of climate risk research, we will explain:

  • The causes of climate change, including greenhouse gas emissions, the greenhouse effect, and the difference between global warming and climate change;

  • The climate change policy landscape, including the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the Paris Agreement, the 1.5o C warming limit, and net-zero policies;

  • The impacts and risks of climate change, including acute and chronic physical risks, transition risks, biodiversity loss and other nature-related risks;

  • The financial risks of climate change, including firm-level and systemic financial risks and their transmission into traditional risk categories, such as credit risk;

  • How climate risk is managed at financial firms, including assessing physical and transition risk, and climate-related reporting and disclosures.

The session is an excellent learning opportunity for those who are new to this critical topic, or for those looking for a refresher on its core concepts.
