Online Lecture: Climate Risk

Our Online Lectures will get you up to speed in a short time. During the 3-hour lecture Climate Risk we will elaborate on the 'phenomenon' of climate change and the importance of acting on it for organisations. Next lecture will take place on Thursday 9 June 2022.

Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) issues are becoming ever more important for the financial sector. The rapid decline of biodiversity and the increasing risks from climate change are starting to impact financial institutions and their clients. This is not a 'future problem' anymore. Climate change creates both physical risks arising from natural hazards, as well as transition risks arising from the transition to a low-carbon economy. It is vital for organisations to act quickly and to develop an understanding of what climate change means to them, and how to identify, assess and manage material financial, performance, and compliance risks.

In this lecture, you will learn what climate change is and why it is important to companies, investors, and lenders. You will also learn more about different sources of climate risks, the role of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and supervisory bodies, as well as how to model climate impacts and where to start with developing a climate risk strategy.

The lecture will be given by Gerhard Mulder. His career in climate finance spanned both the public and private sector, having worked in consulting in Washington DC, environmental markets on Wall Street, and for the Dutch government (Netherlands Enterprise Agency), Dutch banks (ABN AMRO and Rabobank) and a leading non-profit (IUCN) in the Netherlands. He co-founded Climate Risk Services together with Stephanie Gnissios to advise public and private sector organisations on climate risk after he completed his MBA at Oxford in 2018. He studied Environmental Economics and International Affairs at Columbia University in New York, and Public Policy at the University of Amsterdam.
