Events & Webinars by Sector
HSBC in partnership with Chapter Zero, under the auspices of the World Economic Forum’s Climate Governance Initiative, are hosting a series of webinars, which will look at how board directors can better oversee their companies’ climate transition strategies. These sessions will specifically address the needs of Non-Executive Directors of banks and (re)-insurance companies and will include a range of high level speakers who will share their insights, learning and experience.
These interactive sessions will delve into a set of topics that are unique to the financial sector, largely deriving from the work undertaken by leading central banks such as the Bank of England and Banque de France, as set out by the Network of Central Banks and Supervisors for Greening of the Financial System (“NGFS”).
The NGFS was convened around the premise that unabated climate change poses a significant risk to global systemic financial stability and requires prudential oversight frameworks to incorporate a more systematic approach to assessing and mitigating climate risk. Regulated institutions operating in the 60-odd jurisdictions of NGFS member institutions can therefore expect to see heightened demands for differentiated assessment of climate risk exposure by users of banking and insurance services, and more stringent reporting requirements on mitigation actions taken.
