Measuring and managing climate-related financial risks will be critical for institutions across the financial system. This has been made clear by the G20 Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), as well as by central banks and financial regulators around the world.
Physical climate change impacts and societal responses to climate change are already stranding assets across sectors of the global economy and this looks set to accelerate. This has very real implications that need to be appropriately and professionally managed.
Yet practice has not caught up with the theory and the field is developing incredibly quickly. This course will equip participants with the very latest knowledge on climate-related financial risks, as well as the expertise, networks, and confidence to design and implement practices for measuring and managing these risks.
The course has been designed and developed by the Oxford Sustainable Finance Programme to support individuals working in a range of areas, including: risk officers in financial institutions; analysts and portfolio managers; corporate risk managers and strategists; financial regulators supervising or considering how to supervise firms in relation to climate-related risk; government officials integrating climate-related risk into government decision-making and policy; and NGOs working on climate-related financial risks.
The course is centred around a three-day residential workshop held in a college at the University of Oxford from Wednesday 17th to Friday 19th July 2019, with accommodation provided from Tuesday 16th July 2019.
