Understanding Climate Risk Tools: New TCFD reports from UNEP FI

Presented by

David Carlin, TCFD Programme Lead, UNEP FI

About this talk

As climate risk has become an issue of regulatory and strategic importance, a range of tools and methodologies for assessment have been developed. On March 31st, UNEP FI is releasing two reports that will help the financial sector adopt and apply climate risk tools to their portfolios. The first report is an extension to our Landscape Review of Climate Risk tools. This report features over a dozen case studies documenting the actual experiences of financial institutions in applying different tools. It also covers the latest trends in tool development and areas for further attention. The second report focuses on the measurement of climate transition risks for Real Estate. In conjunction with the experts at Carbon Risk Real Estate Monitor (CRREM), UNEP FI and participating financial institutions explored this critical topic. The report features outputs from the CRREM tool and key steps in mitigating transition risks in Real Estate. Speakers: - David Carlin, TCFD Programme Lead, UNEP FI - Tamara Luisce, Senior Advisor for Climate Change, Desjardins  - Prof., Dr. Sven Bienert, REV MRICS, Institute for Real Estate Economics (IIÖ) - Julia Wien, Associate, Institute for Real Estate Economics (IIÖ) - Calvin Lee Kwan, Head of Sustainability & Risk Governance, Link Reit

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.
