Measuring, managing and mitigating the threat from climate change
A 5-day Virtual Event hosted by The Economist Magazine. The Climate Risk Insight Hour webinar will launch this event.
The Economist’s Climate Risk Week will take place from October 12th – 16th and will convene business leaders, investors, academics, and policymakers to discuss the physical and transition risks posed by climate change.
Climate change will reshape every aspect of the global economy, from politics to migration, financing to supply chains. Markets are demanding greater transparency on the climate risks that firms face. So, too, are regulators: in 2019 the Bank of England announced plans for climate stress tests for banks. Such demands will only increase.
Over five days, The Economist will ask what role governments and central banks should play in embedding climate-change data into financial decision-making. How can companies overcome the first-mover disadvantage associated with publishing their risk exposures? Does technology reinvent the rules of risk management? And how can the public and private sectors work together to combat what has become the greatest risk of all?
Some of the topics that will be covered:
- The big restart: lessons in resilience
- Climate Risk and the view from global investors
- The road to COP26
- Climate risk and investors, insurance and banking.

New for 2020
After the success of its inaugural summit in 2019, Climate Risk Week will feature critical global insights from industry leaders on how to better measure, manage, mitigate and report climate-related risks.
The program will explore the unique opportunity which the pandemic has provided to governments and businesses to speed up the transition to a low carbon economy. We explore the role of climate-related data and the new road to COP26.
