Course overview:

Sustainable finance and environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues are top of the agenda of bank regulatory authorities, as is climate change risk and how this will impact banks. The PRA has published PS11/19, and subsequently further regulatory guidance from European Banking Authority (EBA) and Bank for International Settlements (BIS), which requires banks to address climate risk management and how this impacts business models. There is also an urgent need for banks to demonstrate that they are incorporating sustainable finance and environmental, social and governance (ESG) and climate change factors into their stress testing process. 

This workshop addresses all these key issues and provides a good-practice guide on how to incorporate them into a bank’s risk management processes and business model.

This course is delivered by Professor Moorad Choudhry who is an Independent Non-Executive Director on the Board of Recognise Bank. He has served as Chair of the ALCO at four different banking institutions, and is author of The Principles of Banking (John Wiley & Sons Ltd 2012, 2023).
