Climate change is one of the most important challenges of this generation. Financial institutions have an important role to play in mobilizing resources for investments in climate mitigation. In most financial institutions, Senior Management, Risk functions and business areas are already very active in climate relate efforts.
It is clear that missteps today and tomorrow will most certainly lead to regulatory, reputational and litigation impacts in the future. However, we have seen Compliance only working at the fringes of climate related initiatives even though Compliance has many tools in its arsenal to help financial institutions achieve their climate objectives.
In this webinar we covered the current and emerging regulatory environment as it relates to climate for financial institutions (both in the US and globally), perspectives on how institutions are currently managing climate risks and how Compliance functions can support their institutions to meet their climate objectives and minimize reputational and regulatory issues going forward.
