Accepted as an official affiliate event of the Global Climate Action Summit.
To meet the challenges brought on by climate change, financial institutions must concern themselves with financing the transition to a low-carbon economy, and managing the mounting risks related to climate change impacts and the economic transition. Of course, where there is risk, there is also opportunity for those who are aware of the big picture.
Insightful tools are being designed for investors, analysts, and regulators to better understand and manage climate change risks and identify relevant investment opportunities. Together with Carbon Delta, a Zurich-based fintech startup and alumni of the SAFT program, swissnex San Francisco is taking advantage of the Global Climate Action Summit to showcase new solutions for responding to the financial challenges presented by climate change, focusing on new research, analysis, and datasets.
This event will expose participants to tools and methodologies that support the climate change analysis and TCFD-aligned disclosure processes, such as energy transition scenarios, identifying low carbon investment opportunities, the alignment of investment portfolios with climate targets, and applying new asset valuation metrics such as Climate Value-at-Risk.
