|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.

Invitation to the symposium
Carbon Risks and Financed Emissions of Financial Assets and Portfolios
– Quantification, Management and Reporting
02.07.2019 from 13 to 17 hours (Registration and Snacks from 12:30 hours)
at the TechQuartier, Event Space Hammermann (Platz der Einheit 2, 60327 Frankfurt am Main).
|The transition process of the economy towards a Green Economy poses new challenges for investors, politics, supervision and the entire financial industry. In this context, the EU Action Plan calls not only for a reorientation of capital flows towards a sustainable economy, but also for adequate risk management and reporting. The question for investors and asset management is how best to deal with the associated risks and opportunities. |
In this context, the BMBF-funded project “Carbon Risk Management (CARIMA)” provides an approach for the quantification, management and reporting of carbon risks arising in the transition process from a carbon-intensive to a low-carbon economy. At this symposium we will present our approach, which has been developed in exchange with financial practitioners, as well as a series of application-oriented tools. In addition, further presentations will provide exciting insights into the topic of “Carbon Risks and Financed Emissions”.The Chair of Finance and Banking of the Faculty of Business Administration and Economics of the University of Augsburg in cooperation with the Association for Environmental Management and Sustainability in Financial Institutions (VfU) cordially invites you to this symposium.
