Frederik Roeland to explore ESG and climate change approaches for banks’ environmental reporting
Wolters Kluwer Finance, Risk & Regulatory Reporting (FRR) and ifb group will co-host a webinar entitled “Holistic Climate Risk Management: Connecting the Dots” to explore some of the challenges and strategic approaches that Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) reporting, climate risk management, and the greening of financial markets present for financial institutions and their stakeholders. The one-hour event will feature Wolters Kluwer FRR Director of Technology Frederik Roeland and Sven Ludwig, Senior Advisor & ESG Lead at ifb group. It will take place at 3 pm BST/4 pm CEST on Wednesday, May 4.
Current regulatory feedback indicates that banks are not meeting expectations and are behind with regards to their climate strategy, disclosures and the implementation of an ESG risk framework. For many banks, how to approach and execute an adequate climate strategy is an open question that is rising to the top of their agendas and will be a driving force for banks’ businesses in the coming decades. Stakeholder expectations are increasingly driving this question, far more to date than the regulatory developments and expectations alone.
Roeland and Sven Ludwig will examine a number of related challenges and strategic approaches, covering lessons learned from initial practices adopted, and ESG/climate risk appetite and risk management scenarios, to expounding on practical balance sheet management approaches in an ESG world.
