The financial sector is aware of the potential impact of climate change on their products and customers. For example, risk profiles of their products may change due to changes in extreme rainfall, storms, flooding, etc. At the same time the sector’s climate data needs are diverse, with insurance companies, lenders, and asset managers and owners having varying climate data and information needs.

In this webinar, we have invited speakers from the financial, advisory and research sectors to share how parts of the financial services sector are managing climate risks, and ways that financial services firms can interact and engage with climate change research:

  • Rabobank: Bouke de Vries, Lead Rabobank Climate Program
  • EU-MACS project: Robin Hamaker-Taylor, financial services consultant, Acclimatise
  • Climinvest project: Sophie de Jonckheere, Cicero, project manager Climinvest

After the presentations there will be ample time for discussion to share experiences among the participants.

This webinar is the first webinar in a series, organised by SINCERE and ClimateEurope. SINCERE is a European initiative that aims to strengthen international climate change research and innovation collaboration by webinars and other outreach.
