What are the needs of financial institutions to integrate physical climate risks in their decisions? What solutions are already emerging to fill these needs?
To answer these questions, the European ClimINVEST consortium will share the results of a 2-year collaboration between financial institutions and climate change specialists. The research institutions and partners in the financial sector will explain how they clarified their needs and present their solutions to help integrate physical climate risk in investors’ decisions.
This event is an opportunity for financial practitioners to learn science-based and pragmatic recommendations about what physical climate risk assessment should look like, what kind of scientific information can be used and why, but also pave the way forward.
Registration will close on Thursday, 21 November 2019. The organizers will confirm final registration before the event.
More information on the ClimINVEST project is available here.
