Part One

Conceptual foundations for climate risk-driven credit risk modelling

  • Climate-related and environmental risk impacts
  • Climate risk drivers and their transmission
    • into traditional risk categories
    • with a particular focus on credit risk
  • Transmission channels:
    • Microeconomic transmission channels
    • Macroeconomic transmission channel:
  • Risk amplifiers:
    • Risk driver interactions
    • Financial amplifiers
    • Transmission through multiple channels
  • Risk mitigants:
    • Proactive (pre-emptive) risk mitigants
    • Reactive risk mitigants
  • Case studies
  • Group exercises in break-out rooms

Climate risk and its impact on credit risk

  • Introduction to measuring climate-related financial risks
  • Focus on bank-level methodologies as a subtype of measurement approaches
  • Select aspects which are crucial in climate-related financial risk measurement:
    • Exposure granularity trade-offs, top-down and bottom-up approaches

    • Heterogeneities and sources of uncertainty
    • Climate-related data unique characteristics
    • Multiple types of data (different layers in the assessment)
    • Need for current & historical data
  • Bank-level mapping approaches, ratings and scores

Our climate in credit risk modelling course is delivered by a trainer with 15 years of experience in the banking sector. She has worked across credit risk and risk analysis, including climate scenario analysis and stress testing for banks such as KBC, OTP and Raiffeisen Bank. At KBC, she was a senior risk manager, leading in developing and implementing credit risk management toolkits for measuring and monitoring ESG/climate risks and opportunities, and reporting those to the Executive Committee. Notably, she performed transition and physical climate risk materiality assessments based on scenario narratives, implemented PACTA methodology for the loan portfolio and contributed directly to the European Central Bank’s climate stress test by the firm.

More recently, she delivered consultancy, in the role of Principal Consultant on the topics of ESG and credit risk; she also established the climate and environmental risk management services offering for a consultancy firm.

She holds an MSc in Finance and Actuarial Sciences, a PhD, and a specialisation in Corporate Finance from the Corvinus Management and Business Administration Doctoral School in Budapest. She is also a certified financial analyst and certified risk manager (CFA – Chartered Financial Analyst, FRM – Financial Risk Manager, PRM – Professional Risk Manager), and also obtained the GARP Sustainability and Climate Risk (SCR) Certificate.

Our climate in credit risk modelling training course will equip you with the following:
  • To have a thorough understanding of the conceptual foundations of climate-driven credit risk modelling.
  • To apply materiality assessment at a company level and portfolio level for the impacts on the credit of physical and transition climate risks.
  • To understand how physical and transition risks transmit into credit risk metrics such as PD, LGD, and EAD.
  • To comply with current regulatory requirements and/or recommendations.
  • To integrate climate factors into credit risk modelling for PD and LGD.
  • To integrate climate risk management tilts into the credit risk scorecard model.

  • A major focus is on the quantitative approaches to the financial materiality that ESG risks can have for credit risk.
  • Insight into practical aspects of adapting financial risk modelling.
  • A thorough review of related academic research and its implications.
  • Expert guidance perspective based on international experience in ESG.

Redcliffe Training presents this Climate in Credit Risk Modelling Course, perfect for credit analysts, risk officers, and treasury professionals of corporates to enhance their working knowledge.

The jury is still out on whether and to what extent climate-related risks are already incorporated into credit pricing and other financial indicators and their models. The reality is that the physical impacts of climate change and the need to adapt to increasing climate-related regulation are currently having impacts on business models, revenue, costs, and other business factors. This applies both to financial institutions as well as real economy businesses. To date, little advancement has been made in “climate risk modelling” by financial institutions, and financial supervisors are applying pressure to change that.

Climate in credit risk modelling training helps participants to distinguish between the underlying concepts of climate-change-driven credit risks, and navigate the limitations of currently available practices such as data availability. Participants will identify the risk transmission channels that lead from climate change to the financial impact on corporations. Finally, the course takes participants through the steps to practically integrate these risks into existing credit risk scoring models.
