Investing in Resilience Workshop: Tools and frameworks for managing physical risk

06/06/2018, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


The Investor Group on Climate Change and National Bank of Australia are holding a special invitation only workshop aimed at identifying tools and frameworks available for managing climate resilience in investment and lending decisions.

The effects of climate change effects are already being felt and will continue to increase. Institutional investors are also focusing on the physical risks of climate change and incorporating resilience measures in their investment analysis.

With the release of the Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and a growing body of attribution science linking climate change and liability risk, there is also an increasing regulatory and legal burden on business to disclose how companies are managing physical risk.
Investors and business need to ensure that they are identifying the right tools and frameworks to ensure they understand the risks and ensure the resilience of assets and portfolios to climate change.

The IGCC/NAB workshop will:

  • Explore industry frameworks available for decision-making and assessment in key sectors
  • Highlight recent market innovations in tools to identify physical risks
  • Evaluate adaptation options and measure impact
  • Identify what else is needed by investors to assess resilience and protect returns.

This workshop will bring together institutional investors and financiers, as well as corporate, legal, insurance and ESG stakeholders involved in addressing the resilience challenge, to identify practical tools for managing resilience.
