While the European Central Bank (ECB) finalised their expectations on the climate and environmental dimension, the European Banking Authority (EBA) shed more light on the EU’s ESG taxonomy and how it would apply to the banking sector more specifically. Locally, the update of the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier’s (CSSF) circular 12/552 calls for banks to consider ESG risks into their strategy and risk appetite with the objective to ensure viability of the bank’s business model.

This leads to risk and operations officers moving forward in their management of ESG risks.

By the end of this course, participants will be able to understand the current regulatory expectations related to ESG risk management and measurement.
