Accelerating Sustainable Finance: Ceres’ Insights to Managing Climate Risks in Banking and Insurance

June 20, 2024 — 1:15 pm to 2:00 pm EDT

Climate change poses unprecedented risks to the banking and insurance industries, with far-reaching consequences for businesses, governments, and individuals. Rising sea levels, devastating wildfires, and increasingly frequent extreme weather events threaten financial stability and impact loan portfolios, insurance premiums, and investment strategies.

These disruptions can trigger a domino effect, shaking global markets, undermining business growth, and straining government resources. Effectively managing these risks is crucial for the resilience of financial institutions and essential for the security and prosperity of our economies, communities, and livelihoods. Through its Accelerator for Sustainable Capital Markets, Ceres engages with the banking and insurance industries by providing critical research and policy analysis and convening stakeholders to address these challenges.
