View the Climate Implications for Financial Stability Conference below

The Office of Financial Research hosted a virtual conference on climate-related risks and financial stability on September 9, 2022. The event was open to the public.

Climate financial risk is an area of increasing concern. However, our understanding of the financial system’s exposure to climate-sensitive assets remains limited. This is also the case regarding the effects of regulatory changes stemming from policies that confront climate-related issues.

The conference convened experts on climate finance issues to present research and hold panel discussions to provide insights into a broad spectrum of climate finance topics, including macro-prudential issues, asset valuations, credit markets, stress testing, and financial system externalities.
