Scientists Meet Scientists – Virtual TUM-IAS Wednesday Coffee Talk by Prof. Gunther Friedl: "Climate Stress Testing in the Banking Sector: How Does Climate Risk Impact Credit Risk?"


On January 19th, Gunther Friedl, Chair of Management Accounting at the TUM School of Management will talk at our TUM-IAS Wednesday Coffee Talk on "Climate Stress Testing in the Banking Sector: How Does Climate Risk Impact Credit Risk?" (TUM Press Release).

Abstract: 
The significance and consequences of climate change are more present than ever before in the public debate reflected for example in the stricter climate targets set by the EU and the German government in spring 2021. Climate risks are exemplary for the increasing significance of risks from the ecological, social and governance areas for companies, which are also referred to as
ESG risks. The talk presents results from a recent study on how climate risks can be measured and integrated into stress tests. The results demonstrate the significant economic consequences of climate risk for firms and financial institutions.
