Environmental Risk Measurement in Financial Institutions

Open seminar in Czech language

The seminar Environmental Risk Measurement in Financial Institutions 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

The seminar focuses mainly on the practical aspects of measuring environmental risks in banks and other financial institutions. The introductory part presents the context of the issue, including a breakdown of environmental risks and their potential impact on private companies and banks. The seminar then examines the principles, assumptions and applications of different methods of measuring environmental risks, whether it is future modelling and stress testing, metrics directly capturing environmental factors, proxy indicators for banks' exposure to environmental risks or consideration in rating. Relevant regulatory requirements/expectations and issues that can be encountered when measuring environmental risks are also presented in the seminar.


For whom it is intended

The seminar is particularly aimed at risk managers, specialists responsible for risk management, staff from sustainability and ESG risk management departments and internal auditors. It will also provide valuable information to employees of large companies that are involved in environmental risk measurement, whether for their own internal analysis, to meet funding requirements or stakeholder requirements.
