ESG Risk Deep Dive brings together non-financial risk professionals with regulators to discuss the impact of environmental, social and governance risks on financial institutions, and how those risks can be mitigated. The ‘E’ and ‘S’ in ESG are assuming much greater importance in the financial sector, leading to regulatory initiatives and a complex new set of operational risks. Financial institutions must focus on conduct, appropriateness, disclosure and taxonomies. In order to do so, they need better data, new standards and improved regulatory coordination.
Speakers will examine ways of measuring exposure to ESG risk, and the challenges that entails. Leading ESG risk professionals will examine the impact of ESG on risk and control frameworks. Speakers will discuss how culture frameworks can be combined to incorporate ESG values and how the challenges created by a lack of historical data can be overcome. And there will be a session dedicated to how regulatory expectations are aligning with client demand for ESG products.
