Climate & Finance: How can the financial sector anticipate climate related risks?


The Covid-19 crisis and the Russo-Ukrainian war - and their cascading worldwide impacts - are two of the latest illustration that we are definitely not prepared for the unexpected.

Regarding climate change, we are well aware that the world will face brutal consequences in the near future. The physical impacts have already started to get real, with heat waves, fires, floods, storms and drought now in everyone's mind.

We need to address climate action urgently, by reducing massively CO2 emissions and by anticipating both physical climate risks and transition risks.
Such climate risks mean that some sectors will face major shifts in their asset values.

The financial sector, which will be increasingly exposed to those risks, is also on the front line when it comes to tackling climate action and redirect investments.

Therefore, in order to develop a forward looking view or those risks and opportunities, it needs reliable and relevant climate data to integrate transition risks into investment or credit decision-making.

- What are the key facts and figures to know about climate change?
- What are exactly physical and transition climate-related risks?
- How carbon and climate data can help financial actors understand and prevent those risks?
