Indexing capital requirements on climate : What impacts can be expected ?

13 October 2021 - By : Julie EVAIN

Monday 18th October from 9am to 10am

Increasing the contribution of banks is the major issue that I4CE proposes to address in a study published in September 2021.

The objective is to overcome the classic opposition between the supporters of a Green Supporting Factor (for prudential relief due to the lower risk of green assets) and of a Penalizing Factor (to penalize activities that emit high CO2 levels because they are more exposed to transition risks).

By determining the impacts of these two approaches on project financing, on the internal profitability of banks, and on credit growth or contraction, I4CE demonstrates that prudential tools are perhaps a response to a risk problem, but they do not sufficiently respond to the challenges of the transition. Apart from the scheduled exit from fossil fuel activities for which a strong and localized penalizing factor may be possible, the other impacts on the transition of these devices are negligible or even counterproductive.

Moderation by :
  • Pauline Becquey, Managing Director of Finance for Tomorrow, will moderate this exchange.
  • Julie Evain, Reserach fellows, I4CE, will present the highlights of the study.
  • Pierre Monnin, Senior Fellow, Council on Economic Policies, will then react.

A question / answer period is planned for the second part of the webinar.This webinar will be held in English.

    Op-ed I CAP and climate: let’s not be afraid of obligations to achieve results

    In spite of its “greening” during the previous programming period, the Common Agricultural Policy has had very little impact on greenhouse gas emissions from the agricultural sector, even though they must be halved by 2050. And the CAP’s two flagship instruments on environmental issues – green payments under the first pillar, and agri-environmental and climate measures (AECM) under the second – have come in for strong criticism.

    Finance at COP 26: Watch out for the unsexy

    Expectations ahead of COP 26 in Glasgow regarding the contributions of the finance sector are high. Anuschka Hilke from [i4ce] explains that our expectations, however, may not currently be high enough. An impactful contribution to achieving climate goals will require the financial community to go beyond reducing their exposure to climate-related risks.
