Summary

In the last years climate change harbored so-called physical risks for all financial and non–financial market participants. For example, climate-related natural disasters and their follow-up costs increased.

On the other hand, financial institutions can be indirectly affected by so-called transition risks, e.g. due to intervening climate policy measures. For example, illiquid assets in affected industrial sectors could face increased valuation risks on financial institutions’ balance sheets.

Under applicable law, financial institutions are fundamentally obliged to identify, assess and adequately deal with significant climate-related financial risks. They need to further develop their instruments and processes. TCFD (Task Force on Climate) provides a set of recommendations designed to help organizations in disclosing clear, comparable and consistent information about the risks and opportunities presented by climate change. Together with the SNB and academia, FINMA is currently analyzing the transition risks of the two big banks. Moreover, FINMA is reviewing approaches to improve the disclosure of financial climate risks by major financial institutions.

Our keynote speakers aim to discuss the road ahead for regulatory challenges around the existing transparency obligations for climate risks.
