"Responsible Banking"

Understanding green & sustainable finance in the assessment of credit risk

Despite the impact of COVID 19, this year, the climate emergency remains our greatest global challenge- and the Paris agreement singles out the role the financial sector must play in leading the transition to a sustainable, low carbon world. Broader environmental and sustainable risks – and opportunities – are also now the focus for bankers, regulators, and policy makers, especially in the context of the 2021 United Nations Climate Change conference (COP 26) to be held in Glasgow, Scotland this year.
This seminar will delve into what all this means for banks and their future lending policies and risk appetites. It will cover both traditional and newer techniques for credit risk assessment and recognize what is- or is not- meeting the criteria of ‘green and sustainable’.
