Objective of the session
Financial institutions are expected to both achieve an appropriate mitigation of their risk and measure, manage, and inform on the positive and negative contributions their financing activities have on climate disruption.
However, it is often not possible for a financial institution to focus exclusively on ecology. Many corporates require accessing to finance although just starting to engage in still fuzzy and uncertain transition routes.
Iven that various sets of transition scenarios exist, nationally and globally with specific objective, the session aims to present the main features of possible formal transition pathways, which will allow financial institutions to make granular decisions on a day-to-day basis, while being able to account for the relevance of these decisions in terms of the transition to carbon neutrality and climate risk mitigation.
Questions to be addressed
- What are the main challenges posed to the financial sector by the transition to a carbon neutral economy?
- What are the challenges posed by the definition and provision of reliable and credible transition pathways?
