Transforming Resilient Investment: Risk Pricing & Climate Change Impacts

Presented by

Carlos Sanchez, Willis Towers Watson | Moderator: Paul Smith, UNEP FI

About this talk

Launched at the UN Climate Action Summit in New York in September 2019, the Coalition for Climate Resilient Investment (CCRI) aims to transform infrastructure investment by integrating climate risks into decision-making, driving a shift towards a more climate resilient economy for all countries, including the most vulnerable. Building the economic and financial case for climate resilient investments will mobilise capital into resilient infrastructure and foster a more resilient financial industry. The Coalition combines the strength of global private financial industry companies with $8 trillion of assets under management and Government and multilateral institution partners, to conceptualise, develop and pilot the first end-to-end analytical framework for the pricing of physical climate risks in investment decision-making. The Coalition is convened jointly by Willis Towers Watson and the World Economic Forum, and is supported by the Global Commission on Adaptation and the Governments of the UK and Jamaica.

United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) is a partnership between United Nations Environment and the global financial sector created in the wake of the 1992 Earth Summit with a mission to promote sustainable finance. More than 240 financial institutions, including banks, insurers, and investors, work with UN Environment to understand today’s environmental, social and governance challenges, why they matter to finance, and how to actively participate in addressing them. UNEP FI’s work also includes a strong focus on policy – by facilitating country-level dialogues between finance practitioners, supervisors, regulators and policy-makers, and, at the international level, by promoting financial sector involvement in processes such as the global climate negotiations.
