Financial services climate risk webinar series

Across the globe, organisations and individuals are working towards a sustainable future to prevent climate change. But climate change also brings financial risks, which is a growing area of concern for businesses, regulators and investors.

Our recent series of webinars looked at the financial risk of environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) issues and how you can prepare your business. Watch full recordings of the events below.

ESG: industry perspectives

May 2021 update

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors are increasingly driving decision-making across financial services. With a more demanding client base, rising concerns about climate change, compliance coming thick and fast, as well as data suggesting COVID-19 is making us re-consider social issues, the effective integration of ESG is now critical for maintaining long term value in your organisation.

In our webinar, a panel of industry experts from across financial services explained how to integrate ESG effectively and discuss what a successful cross-functional ESG integration programme looks like.

ESG Unravelled

February 2021 update

Environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) has become increasingly topical as financial institutions need to adhere to frameworks including the Paris Agreement on climate change objectives. Investors are equally struggling to keep up with assessing the ESG credentials of the range of products available.

During this ‘no holds barred’ webinar, we explored the financial risk of climate change and how your business can prepare itself.

Climate risk and financial services

What should you do now to develop and embed effective climate risk management processes?

September 2020 update

The financial services sector is once again facing several transformational challenges: a global pandemic; adaption to an entirely new way of working; an East–West trade war; and ever greater disruption to established business models. Another critical and growing challenge is the financial risk from climate change.

During this virtual event we engaged with stakeholders and industry bodies to inform, advise and provide practical support to clients of all sizes in addressing this challenge.
