The exposure of financial institutions to risks from a transition to a low-carbon economy

This workshop shall address some of the limitations in current modelling approach, with a focus on transition risks. The programme will be divided into two consecutive sessions: Session I focuses on scenario applications for evaluating transition risks for financial institutions and Session II is orientated around scenario calibration and modelling methodologies.

NGFS Scenarios Portal

Changes to our climate are unprecedented and so past data are a poor guide to the risks that may materialise in the future. The NGFS scenarios provide a framework to assess and manage the future financial and economic risks that changes to our climate might bring. They provide a coherent set of transition pathways, climate impact projections, and economic indicators at country-level, over a long time horizon and under varying assumptions. The NGFS scenarios provide a foundation for scenario analysis across many institutions, creating much-needed consistency and comparability of results.
