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.

    Hydrogen : France still has many challenges to face

I4CE invited researchers Jean-Pierre Ponssard from Polytechnique/CNRS and Guy Meunier from INRAE, both members of the Energy & Prosperity Chair, to analyze France’s “hydrogen plan”.

    2020: climate should be everybody’s business

    For too long climate change has remained confined to the green silos of our public institutions: it was onyl the business of Environment Ministries. The situation seems to have improved over the last ten years, but we are still a long way from “climate mainstreaming”. For Benoit Leguet, Director of I4CE, 2020 will offer multiple opportunities to test commitments, in France and internationally.

    Carbon Tax : France can learn from foreign experiences to move forward

    France is by no means the only country with difficulties – that is an understatement – in introducing an accepted carbon tax. And not the only one to have taken up the challenge of a public policy leading to higher energy prices for households and businesses. In 2018, the World Bank identified 29 countries or […]
