 Welcome by Richard Peers, ResponsibleRisk

How can the financial services sector resolve gaps in ESG data, despite being an industry tainted by greenwashing? What are the next steps for standardising carbon markets and what is the role of nature in decarbonisation?

What are the benefits of utilising APIs for the disclosure of ESG data and how can AI/ML, NLP and LIDAR be used to extract new data? How can the financial services industry have greater control over data to achieve the UN SDGs?

10:30 - 11:00

Coffee and networking

Considering inward, outward, historical, and future-looking data, what is the role of risk management and reporting? How can risk be better priced? Further, looking at a bank’s internal risk cycle, how can the ILAAP and GLAAP guidelines assist with ESG reporting?

 

30 minute presentation, followed by a 15 minute Q&A. 

What impact will the SFDR, TCFD, CSRD and the Green Fintech Taxonomy have and what responsibilities do central banks have? Can technology simplify the complexity of existing regulations, or are new regulations needed to ensure green transition risk stress tests are conducted amid a lack of credible data?

12:30 - 13:45

Lunch and networking

With climate and nature being two sides of the same coin, how can the financial services industry find projects that are substantial, yet manageable enough to invest in?

The use of distributed ledger technology with green bonds is currently being debated by banks and other financial institutions. However, can the use of blockchain and encryption algorithms truly help boost confidence in the green bond market? What does this mean for the technology that represents for the green bond market and its complete tokenisation?

14:45 - 15:15

Coffee and networking

Dissecting the issues that emerge from ‘just transitions’, how can we resolve issues such as new vegetarian foods continuing to result in rainforests being destroyed and workers’ rights not being prioritised? How can satellite and sensor data help police the edges of supply chains?

16:00 - 17:00
