Smart About Risk  

Green finance and ESG risks

The seminar Green finance and ESG risk is organized as an open seminar for employees from different institutions and also as an in-house seminar organized for employees of clients with tailor made requirements.

Objectives of the seminar

This seminar will help you to orient yourself in what the so-called Green Finance is and what to imagine under ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) risks. After attending the seminar, you will understand how this current issue can affect your bank and your clients, and how to begin to take it into account in your strategy.

For whom it is intended

The seminar is intended primarily for managers and specialists responsible for risk management and compliance, whether they are responsible for ESG risks or they are only influenced by the impact of ESG on their organization. The seminar is also intended to internal auditors or product and sales managers of the Corporate segment and, of course, to everyone who operates in this area.


What you will learn

You will learn what the concept of Green Finance means and how it is defined by social demand and the gradually emerging system of regulations and requirements. Green Finance and ESG risks are one of the six priorities of the EBA for 2021, and therefore the need to understand them is practically unavoidable.
Therefore, we bring you an information-rich overview, in which we will discuss, among other things, the impact on bank clients and the bank itself, including the incorporation in the bank's capital requirements. We will help you orient yourself in related regulatory documents.
In the end, we will present different views on investment decisions and compare the performance of classic and green investments.
