Symposium: Carbon Risk Management & Financed Emissions Quantification, Management and Reporting of Carbon Risks

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

we would like to invite you to our symposium:

Carbon Risk Management & Financed Emissions
Quantification, Management and Reporting of Carbon Risks

02.07.2019, 12:30 – 17:00 Uhr
TechQuartier, Event Space Hammermann
Platz der Einheit 2
60327 Frankfurt am Main

The initiated transition process of the economy towards a CO2-neutral economy is associated with various and sometimes considerable risks and opportunities for the business models of practically all companies as well as the corresponding values of financial securities and securities portfolios. “Making carbon risks quantifiable and manageable is a key prerequisite for success as an investor, asset manager, lender and insurer in the coming years. At the symposium, current financial approaches will be presented that support an assessment of carbon risks and opportunities for various business segments and asset classes.

The event will focus on the capital market-oriented concept “Carbon Risk Management and Financed Emissions (CARIMA)” developed over two years within the framework of the BMBF’s “Green Economy” research programme, which can be used to measure, quantify and manage carbon risks and financed emissions. In addition, we are looking forward to numerous other presentations in the field of Climate Finance.

If you are interested, please register under the following link.
We are looking forward to an informative day with you.
