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. 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 now the focus for bankers, regulators, and policy makers too, 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 these mean 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.
- Understand responsible banking
- Define sustainable principles (green and blue)
- Understand policies and frameworks
- Recognize the impact on banks (capital, reputation risks and the economy)
- Access to on-lending funds for sustainable projects and clients
- Set new credit policies and procedures
- Assess credit risk and internal rating
The courses will be delivered via ZOOM in 4 three-hour sessions (5:30pm – 8:30pm). Delivery will use a collaborative method focusing on discussions and exercises which will be led by an experienced facilitator. Participants will only need access to the internet, to a web cam and PC/laptop microphone.
