ESG Risk Deep Dive



At XLoD Global in November 2022
Bill Winters, Chief Executive Officer, Standard Chartered Bank, said:

“We know that managing these non financial risks requires a very distinct, special set of skill sets and practices. And we tried very hard to hardwire these into our operations.”

Do you need to find out how senior non financial risk practitioners think about ESG risks, the maturity of their related risk management processes, and how to make the data challenge more manageable?

1LoD’s ESG Risk Deep Dive brings together leading 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.

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.

During four in-depth panel sessions, hosted over two days, senior speakers will examine ways of measuring exposure to ESG risk, and the challenges that entails. 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.

More than half (57%) of ESG leaders at the 2022 deep dive said that data is the most significant challenge facing the management of ESG risks in their own organisations. Firms need data for performance measurement, risk management and regulatory reporting. But most of this data comes from clients and other third parties, so it is inconsistent and difficult to obtain and verify. Even ESG indices and ratings use different methodologies, raising concerns of misselling and other forms of misconduct.
