In cooperation with

Climate change and the risks that it poses for economic development and financial stability entered the agendas of a growing number of central banks, financial supervisors, and of investors, who are increasingly required to assess their climate-related financial risks using climate scenarios and climate stress-tests. However, the understanding of climate risk assessment frameworks, and their related challenges and opportunities, is often limited. To shed light on this topic, we are glad to invite you to a half-day event on `ESG and climate risk management framework for the financial sector` co-organized by WU’s Institute for Ecological Economics and SUERF. The event is planned both, online via live stream and onsite at the WU (Vienna University of Economics and Business).
