MAS Environmental (Climate) Risk Management Primer


Banks are under rising regulatory and commercial pressure to protect themselves from the impact of climate change and to align with the global sustainability agenda. Banking regulators around the world, including MAS are now formalizing new rules for climate-risk management. This course aims to provide an introductory overview of the climate change regulatory agenda, as well as the regulatory and stakeholder expectations with regards to climate and environmental risk management and the impact of the environmental, sustainability, and governance (ESG) factors in the banks’ investment and lending decisions in response to the shifting attitudes towards “green” financing.
