ESG: CLIMATE RISK IMPLICATIONS FOR SWISS FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS’ DISCLOSURE AND REPORTING

REGISTRATION

 

Mounting pressure from governments, regulators, industry, investors, and customers has driven ESG to the very top of today’s business agenda, starting with the environmental pillar “E”. 

In recent years we have seen a tipping point in relation to the attitude towards the environment. As tomorrow’s green economy is taking shape, firms are committed to reporting and disclosure practices. The Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) has developed recommendations for more effective climate-related disclosures, subsequently adopted as the ‘de facto standard’ for reporting climate-related risks and opportunities internationally and in Switzerland.

COP26 is setting the scene for yet more ambitious climate goals and stringent reporting requirements, and specifically their global alignment. What is the aftermath for the Swiss financial services sector?

At our event, two keynote speeches will be followed by a panel discussion by leading industry experts who will debate the implications of ESG on financial disclosure and reporting for Switzerland.


THIS PANEL DISCUSSION WILL BE LED BY INDUSTRY EXPERTS INCLUDING:

 

  • Dr August Benz, Head Private Banking and Asset Management, Deputy CEO of the Swiss Bankers Association (SBA) 
  • Jérôme Eschbach, Head of Impact Solutions, BNP Paribas in Switzerland
  • Christoph Baumann, Deputy Head of Insurance and Sustainable Finance at State Secretariat for International Finance (SIF)
  • Sébastien Renaud, Regulatory Change for Pictet Asset Management

The panel will be moderated by our very own Audrey Miguel and Dr BA Florence Anglès.
