Here’s an excerpt from this post by Zsuzsanna Tajti about UNEP FI’s latest report entitled “The 2023 Climate Risk Landscape“:
𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐫𝐞𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐭 𝐚𝐝𝐝𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐞𝐬 𝐟𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐢𝐚𝐥 𝐢𝐧𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐭𝐮𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬’ 𝐜𝐫𝐮𝐜𝐢𝐚𝐥 𝐧𝐞𝐞𝐝𝐬:
Physical climate change impacts are becoming increasingly prevalent, “affecting almost every human and natural system across the globe”. In the meanwhile, our economies are transitioning to a net-zero (or at least to a more sustainable) future.
Consequently, companies & communities need to:
– build climate resilience to address physical risks and
– contribute to a #sustainable future to win in the transitioning #economy.

Significant developments & advancements have taken place since the publication of UNEP FI’s corresponding previous reports, therefore the objectives of this new analysis are to provide an overview of:
– industry & #regulatory developments and climate risk assessment related market updates,
– a broad range of transition & physical risk approaches (incl. underlying climate scenarios, #risk types, methodologies),
-the ways how banks can use climate risk tools, and
– a roadmap delineating how to choose from the available full range of potential options.

UNEP FI will closely follow up on the developments and support financial institutions by
– providing platform for dialogues via e.g. the Climate Risk and TCFD Programme,
– assisting financial institutions in better understanding the diverse & dynamic landscape of climate risk tools by carrying out detailed analyses as joint exercises, and
– sharing experience & knowledge through information sessions, webinars & publications such as this latest excellent report.
