Brought to you by ICAEW Financial Services Faculty, we are delighted to present a series of hour-long webinars and resources to help appreciate the challenges and opportunities of better understanding environmental, social and governance (ESG) risk through provision of better information.
Complimentary to all ICAEW members as well as Sustainability and Climate Change Community members, this event is the third of six webinars taking place throughout September and October.
Businesses are increasingly grappling with their role in working towards a better understanding of how to manage ESG risks effectively. Climate risks typically fall into two categories:
To understand and mitigate climate-related financial risks, one of the key recommendations of the Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) focuses on the resilience strategy of an organisation, taking different climate-related scenarios into consideration.
So the real question is...where does your organisation sit within this challenge and are you prepared?
Physical risk: What can be modelled and how is it relevant? How does it affect risk and its management?
Physical risk experts blend economic modelling with climate science to help you reduce risks, identify new opportunities, and build resilience in the face of climate change. They support financial institutions, corporates and governments around the world building on extensive experience across sectors to provide data-driven solutions tailored to specific needs.
Transition risk: What are the likely changes and how do they affect risk?
Regulatory requirements, the risk of impairment of assets, stakeholder pressure, changes in growth patterns, and competitive differentiation drive more and more financial organisations to develop a strategy to integrate ESG risks into their activities. V.E offers a full range of services dedicated to institutional investors, whether invested in capital (private equity, construction, and property) or debt, and cover all ESG integration requirements (strategy, implementation, reporting and communication).
Access to the Sustainability & Climate Change Community is free of charge and available to all, including non-ICAEW members.
Access to this webinar and all other Financial Services Faculty webinars are included within membership of the Financial Services Faculty. If you sign up to any of our Banking, Insurance or Investment Management services, you will be able to access the entire ESG webinar series of 6 x webinars free of charge. ICAEW membership is not a pre-requisite.
