Macro Learnings about Climate-related Credit Losses

9 mins 10 secs

Overview

Despite 50 years or more of global warming, it has been found that climate change has had a limited impact on the financial system. The ECB undertook a climate stress test in parallel to the bank of England's Climate Biennial Exploratory Scenario (CBES) test and they found that corporate probability of default levels would rise by only 7% under a no-action scenario (hothouse world scenario).

Key learning objectives:

  • Analyse the current and projected impact of climate change on the financial system

  • Explore the macro-level evidence for the impact of climate change on the financial system
