2021 GARP Climate Risk Symposium: New Frontiers in Climate Risk Management

Register now to attend GARP's virtual 2021 Climate Risk Symposium on November 23 and 30, 2021 from 1:00 - 2:30 pm GMT

Part I of the 2021 Climate Risk Symposium will begin on November 23 at 1:00 pm GMT, with a focus on practical advances in climate risk management over the past year. The 90-minute webcast will look at supervisors’ growing interest in climate risk management at firms, with a particular emphasis on the work of the U.K.’s Climate Financial Risk Forum (CFRF).

The CFRF, an industry forum jointly convened by the PRA and FCA, provides an interesting model of collaboration and is generating insights that are relevant and useful for firms all around the world. We will hear from industry insiders how financial firms are embedding climate within their risk management frameworks by establishing climate risk appetite statements. We will also look at how firms use scenario analysis to assess physical and transition risk, as well as the increasing trend of aligning portfolios with certain outcomes (e.g. “Paris” or “1.5 degree alignment”).

The event will continue with Part II on November 30 at 1:00pm GMT, concentrating on the experiences of firms involved in some of the early regulatory climate stress tests. This session will feature insights and case studies from top banks while offering practical advice on how firms can treat scenario analysis as a useful pillar of their climate risk strategy rather than simply a check-the-box compliance exercise.
