At the end of this month, the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) will start in Glasgow. It will be an important conference, because time is running out. Just three recent news examples to substantiate the urgency:
COP26 is once again bringing parties together to renew the Paris agreements. Following this conference, Synechron is bringing together parties from the financial services industry. Central banks and regulators need to make sure that our financial systems can withstand the impacts of climate change and support the transition to net zero. It also means banks, insurers, investors and other financial firms committing to ensuring their investments and lending are aligned with the net zero goal.
On November 23rd we are organizing a webinar about Climate Risk together with ABN AMRO and our partner Green RWA. We will look at Climate Risk from the financial services sector perspective - to increasing risks (both physical and transitional), challenges and possibilities for banks, regulatory demands, client expectations, (lacking) climate data, and climate proof risk management.
You are cordially invited to participate in this webinar. There are no costs involved.
