Webcast: How firms are responding to rapidly evolving climate-related regulation

Read more



In this webcast, EY panelists discuss international regulators’ concerns about increasing climate-related environmental risks, the key components and future direction of regulatory policies and how firms can respond.

As the financial impacts of climate change become clearer, financial services regulators and supervisors are focusing increasingly on the breadth and depth of appropriate responses.

Policy trends indicate many common areas of focus, and similarities of approach around the world. However, significant differences and questions remain, and the picture is evolving rapidly.

Regulators want both to embed environmental risks into core risk processes and to encourage rapid development of “green” markets, but firms looking to make progress on their product offerings and risk processes face real challenges arising from the current lack of consistency and clarity on standards.

Join EY panelists from our Global Regulatory Network and Global Sustainable Finance teams as they discuss the challenges and opportunities for the financial sector as set out in our recent paper Climate change and sustainability: Global regulators step up the pace.

Topics discussed will include:

  • Key global regulatory themes of climate change risk and sustainability
  • Climate change as a financial risk
  • Green conduct concerns and approaches
  • Six key implications and opportunities for financial services

Speakers:

  • Gill Lofts – EY Global Financial Services Sustainable Finance Leader, EY Financial Services Wealth & Asset Management Leader, Ernst & Young LLP United Kingdom
  • Eugene Goyne – EY Asia-Pacific Financial Services Regulatory Lead
  • John Liver – EY Global Financial Services Regulatory Network Co-Lead and EY EMEIA Financial Services Compliance and Conduct Leader
