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.

About the SSE
The SSE initiative is a UN Partnership Programme organised by UNCTAD, the UN Global Compact, UNEP FI and the PRI. The SSE’s mission is to provide a global platform for exploring how exchanges, in collaboration with investors, companies (issuers), regulators, policymakers and relevant international organizations, can enhance performance on ESG (environmental, social and corporate governance) issues and encourage sustainable investment, including the financing of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The SSE seeks to achieve this mission through an integrated programme of conducting evidence-based policy analysis, facilitating a network and forum for multi-stakeholder consensus-building, and providing technical assistance and advisory services.
