Event description
The BPFI is delighted to announce its first full conference dedicated to implications of climate change for banking in Ireland.

About this Event

The BPFI Banking on Sustainability half day Conference , in association with Deloitte, will take place on Thursday 24th October from 9.00am - 1.00pm in the BPFI Conference Centre.

The Conference will provide delegates with a unique opportunity to consider the implications of climate change for the financial services sector in Ireland. This BPFI event will provide insights into changes to the financial services framework to support the transition to a low-carbon, more resource-efficient and sustainable economy, the integration of climate-related risk into banks’ risk management and strategy, and banks’ experience to date

Climate change requires a global perspective and local action: How will the European Union’s ambition to deliver on the commitments of the Paris Climate Agreement and the UN Sustainable Development Goals impact on financial services providers? What is current thinking on the incorporation of effective climate risk management in banking? Ireland now has its Climate Action Plan – what are the opportunities and challenges inherent in in de-carbonising the economy?

The half-day seminar will feature expert presentation and discussion on sustainable finance, ensuring the climate resilience of assets, impending supervisory response, finance for energy efficiency products and best practice in banking.

Minister Richard Bruton, T.D., Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment, will be one of our key note speakers, along with Oliver Wyman on Climate Risk; European Banking Authority on the implementation of a sustainable finance regime; European Banking Federation on EU’s Action Plan: Financing Sustainable Growth; BNP Paribas on the integration of sustainability into a bank and sponsor Deloitte on de-carbonising the Irish economy, among others.
