Chapter 4: Behind the curve? The role of climate change in banking supervision

Andreas Dombret


Climate change represents the most significant, and by far most dangerous, challenge our planet is facing. Consequently, the banking sector – as financier of the real economy – needs to take this systemic risk category, which has been largely ignored by most banks up to now, into account. Bank supervision plays a key role in making sure that the risk management of banks adjusts appropriately.

Andreas Dombret supported Mark Carney, who first addressed these issues; spearheaded the initiative for sustainable, greener finance in Germany; and helped promote the concept in other euro zone countries.
