Environmental risks have become unneglectable risks for financial institutions. Banks and other non-bank financial institutions have to learn how to identify, assess and manage such risks at both project level and portfolio level. 

Risk assessment requires higher level of ESG disclosure. This has become a trend worldwide among stock exchanges and the latest development focuses on climate-related financial disclosure. 

In addition to that, UN Principles for Responsible Banking (PRB) point out that the banking sector globally is expanding from ESG risk management to impact creation.

This webinar, co-hosted by the UN SSE, the China SIF and the IFC-SBN, brought together experts from the Network of Central Banks and Supervisors for Greening the Financial System (NGFS), IFC-supported Sustainable Banking Network (SBN), UN Sustainable Stock Exchanges (UN SSE) initiative and UNEP Financial Initiative-Principles for Responsible Banking (PRB) to introduce latest development of environmental risk management, climate disclosure as well as Impact creation and management.
