Integrating Climate Risks in Stress Testing

Dec 1, 2020 , Ljubljana, Slovenia Webinar
Nov 30, 2020

This webinar gives an overview of new developments in stress testing. Namely, we will discuss climate change implications on the financial sector and the economy, and how those risks are assessed and included into stress tests.

At the webinar, we will take a closer look at some of the different practices of central banks and other authorities conducting such stress tests as well as on how banks can themselves assess climate risks to their activities.

After the general presentation on latest developments, participants will be able to learn on recent ECB practice as well as hear experience from the Dutch Central Bank and the Bank of France.

The webinar will be delivered in English. It is going to take place on December 1 at 10:00 and will last 1.5h.

  • employees in financial stability departments,
