Climate Resilience Conference 2023

Climate Crunch: Navigating Risks and Opportunities in the Takaful & Insurance Sector

Join us at the upcoming conference on Climate Risk Management and Scenario Analysis (CRMSA), where we will delve into the crucial topic of managing the adverse impacts of climate change on financial institutions.  Climate change poses material financial risks that can jeopardize the safety and stability of financial institutions, with far-reaching implications for the overall financial system and the sustainability of domestic economic growth. At this conference, we will explore the requirements for CRMSA, aimed at enhancing the resilience of financial institutions against climate-related risks through Policy Documents issued by Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM). We will also discuss the role of these practices in facilitating a just and orderly transition to a low-carbon economy.  Join us as we delve into the importance of safeguarding financial institutions’ resilience against climate-related risks and how to evaluate the risks and opportunities arising from climate change when assessing and approving strategies and business plans.  Don’t miss this opportunity to gain valuable insights and network with industry experts.  Register now for the Climate Resilience Conference 2023.
