DERIVATIVES IN SUSTAINABLE FINANCE

Enabling the green transition

0

In recent years, the concept of sustainability has increased in scope and importance for policymakers. In Europe, this has been translated to the EU Sustainable Finance Action Plan, which aims to: i) reorient capital flows towards sustainable investment; ii) manage financial risks stemming from climate/environmental/social issues; and iii) promote transparency and long-termism in financial and economic activity. The EU will continue to pursue these aims with a renewed strategy in late 2020. The derivatives market could play a significant role in Europe’s transition to a green economy.

This CEPS-ECMI webinar will focus on the role that derivatives could play in the green transition:

  • How can derivatives help realise the EU’s sustainable investment goals?
  • How do derivatives fit into the current EU’s sustainable finance legislative framework (e.g. carbon pricing and mitigation)?
  • Which characteristics make derivatives a useful tool for the buy-side (e.g. large corporate treasurers, small companies, insurance companies and pension funds) to manage sustainability risks?
  • What are the risks and opportunities for investors of using derivatives to achieve sustainability exposure in a diversified portfolio?

Speakers:

  • Scott O’Malia, CEO, International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA)
  • Bernard Coopman, Global Head Client Solutions Group, ING Wholesale Banking/Financial Markets
  • Clive Emery, Multi Asset Portfolio Strategist, Invesco
  • Others to be confirmed
