Lunch briefing: 

Climate change risk – The new frontier for banks

 

The future of operationalising the environmental risks within ESG

August 8, 2023 | 12:50PM - 2:50PM AEST | Four Seasons Hotel, Sydney

Hosted by Oracle and Asia Risk

 

 

Join our experts as they discuss the growing relevance of climate change data and risk management and its impact on banks, financial institutions and their customers. Current climate change regulatory requirements continue to evolve including the recent mandate for Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA), with the introduction of climate vulnerability assessment and direction to include “promoting transparency in relation to financial risks and the adoption of climate reporting standards”.   
 
Delve deep into current climate change related ESG regulatory requirements both in Australia and overseas to gain a better understanding of how financial institutions can address the challenges of data, measurement, workflow, technology, and disclosure requirements. Understand the changes required in climate change analytics, modelling, stress-testing, and accounting disclosures to address the increased risks.
