Event description
ClimINVEST conference on physical climate risk and financial impacts including exchange with scientists and other relevant stakeholders.

About this Event

Financial actors are already exposed to the impacts of climate change on the real economy as illustrated by PG&E’s bankruptcy in early 2019. While financial institutions need to prepare for physical climate risks now, they face a lack of science-based information relevant for their decisions.

What are the needs of financial institutions to integrate physical climate risks in their decisions? What solutions are already emerging to fill these needs?

To answer these questions, the European ClimINVEST consortium will share the results of a 2-year collaboration between financial institutions and climate change specialists. The research institutions and partners in the financial sector will explain how they clarified their needs and present their solutions to help integrate physical climate risk in investors’ decisions.

This event is an opportunity for financial practitioners to learn science-based and pragmatic recommendations about what physical climate risk assessment should look like, what kind of scientific information can be used and why, but also pave the way forward.

Registration will close on Thursday, 21 November 2019. The organizers will confirm final registration before the event.
