Climate Action for Bankers - 2 Part Series

Climate Action for Bankers - 2 Part Series

October 11, 2022
October 12, 2022 
2:30 pm – 4:30 pm Eastern Both Sessions

The climate crisis is upon us and the banking industry has a key role to play in tackling this challenge. Climate action should be viewed as a massive strategic opportunity for banks to position themselves in the context of a global, whole-of-economy transition, with emerging business models, technologies, and forward-looking approaches that will define future success. This two-part webinar series will provide a blueprint for how bankers can execute a just and equitable transition to a net-zero economy.

The first webinar will outline how bankers can update their business models and strategies, set robust science-based climate targets, and develop credible transition plans for a net-zero future. This session will outline a roadmap for the process, including top-down and bottom-up approaches, and include case studies of banks who are signatories to the Net-Zero Banking Alliance. A successful climate plan leverages the capabilities, creativity, passion, and skill set of the entire workforce in a sustained and disciplined manner.

The second webinar will outline how bankers can consciously contribute to the design and building of a just, equitable, and regenerative economic system that delivers well-being for all. This second session will introduce the concept of climate justice, a recognition that the climate crisis has had a disproportionately negative impact on historically marginalized communities around the world. A successful climate action plan means linking solutions that advance human rights and dignity in an equity-centered approach; placing the needs, voices, and leadership of those who are most impacted at the forefront.
