/Greening the financial system

To achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement and our wider environmental ambitions, all finance will need to incorporate the financial risks and opportunities presented by climate change and other environmental challenges. There is increasing international recognition of the need to integrate climate and environmental factors into mainstream financial decision-making. Alongside the private sector, central banks and supervisors are also taking action to address the far-reaching financial risks associated with climate change and other environmental risks. This session will explore existing and emerging efforts to green the financial system and the UK’s systemically important role as a major global financial centre.

Panellists:

Chair: Matt Scott, Head of Green Finance, Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

Tom Duggan, Deputy Director for the Securities, Markets and Banking team, at HM Treasury

Chris Faint, Head of Peer Supervision and Climate Risks, Prudential Regulation Authority, Bank of England
