Climate Change: Managing Financial Risks and Green Finance Initiatives

September 26 – 29

Live Content sessions held: 9am–1pm (EDT) | 2pm–6pm (BST) | 9pm–1am (SGT) 

Chair: TBC

In 2022, it is no longer a question of whether central banks should address climate change, but rather a question of how. Increasingly governors, boards and stakeholders recognise that central banks impact extends beyond portfolio and treasury considerations to supervision and to its carbon footprint. Climate is a strategic issue. Yet, questions remain around how to incorporate climate change into existing mandates, objectives, policies and strategic plans. Is a centralised function needed or do specialist areas need specialised expertise? 

This course is designed to equip central bankers to meet these challenges. Each day will feature three hours of expert-led Live Content to maximise the opportunity to share and learn. The chair will ensure participants have opportunities to network throughout the course, with time set aside for a workshop on implementing key learnings.
