An Overview of GARP’s 2020 Climate Risk Symposium
On November 10 and 17, GARP will host the 2020 Climate Risk Symposium, a complimentary virtual event moderated by GARP Risk Institute featuring conversations with top regulators and risk professionals on the systemic risks of climate change.
Here’s what to expect from the second annual Climate Risk Symposium:
Building Resilience Against the Financial Risks of Climate Change | November 10, 2020 | 1:00pm-2:30pm GMT
This session will unpack how financial institutions, central banks, and governments can work collaboratively to ensure the financial system’s resilience in the face of climate change. Featuring executives from the Bank of England, Hong Kong Monetary Authority, and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the conversation will also center on the various approaches to regulatory standards for climate, and how central banks and institutions are working to meet these ambitious goals.
Climate Change Transition Risk – Interactive Scenario Game | November 17, 2020 | 3:30pm-5:00pm GMT
Our closing session will feature a scenario game, where board members of a hypothetical company are faced with navigating transition risks stemming from moves to a low-carbon economy. Ideal for those interested in better understanding climate transition risk, this session will enable risk professionals to be active decision makers amid greater uncertainty — as board members they will deal with difficult decisions and questions based on risks that are difficult to quantify.
