Description

The Centre for Risk Analytics in the Macquarie Business School will host its 10th annual conference on the 30th of April 2021 to discuss climate change financial risks and opportunities.

Policymakers and investors increasingly recognize the important implications of climatic change for the financial industry. It can be expected that climate change will lead to not only additional financial risks for the sector but also to many-fold investment opportunities. Industry and government are required to carefully consider their climate change risk management, and to develop a range of options and policies, as well as an effective regulatory framework.

The 2021 Financial Risk Day will examine recent developments in the financial sector with regards to managing climate change risks. It will consider both specific and broad approaches for government, financial institutions and product providers to develop solutions that meet the needs of winners and losers in the transition to a lower carbon economy. Experts from industry, regulation and academia will discuss how to develop sustainable solutions and sources of funding in the private sector to ensure climate-resilient investments.
