Studie über die finanziellen Risiken des Klimawandels bei Banken

Nachhaltige Finanzwirtschaft stellt ein entscheidender Faktor in der wirtschaftlichen Aufschwungsphase nach Covid-19 dar. Die Regulierungsbehörden ermutigen die Banken dazu, klimabedingte Risiken aktiv in ihre Geschäftsabläufe und ihr Risikomanagement zu integrieren. Vor diesem Hintergrund hat Mazars analysiert, wie 30 der weltweit größten Banken auf klimabedingte Finanzrisiken eingegangen sind. (Studie auf Englisch)

The Covid-19 outbreak brings into sharp relief the need to address sustainability risks and improve societal resilience. In its Renewed Sustainable Finance Strategy, which is open for consultation until 15 July 2020, the European Commission sends a clear message: the pandemic has not postponed European long-term sustainability objectives. The EU’s sustainable finance agenda will in fact be a crucial factor in the economic recovery in response to Covid-19 and the financial sector will play a key part in mobilising the necessary capital.

Against this background we have analysed how 30 of the largest banks worldwide have been handling climate-related financial risks by consulting their most recently publicly-disclosed information. The objective of this study is to assess the extent to which banks have integrated climate change in the areas of governance, risk management, scenario analysis and disclosures, and their level of readiness for recent and upcoming climate-related supervisory expectations.
