Amid heightened global interest in climate change in recent years, there have been increasing discussions among central banks or financial supervisory authorities, and furthermore at international meetings or similar events participated by them, around the risks of climate change that may impair the financial stability (climate-related financial risks).
The Bank of Japan has made progress in discussions at international meetings and exchanges of views with national authorities or related stakeholders such as financial institutions, on issues around climate change, including joining the Network for Greening the Financial System (NGFS, a group of central banks and supervisors willing to discuss issues related to climate-related risks) in 2019. As part of these efforts, the Financial System and Bank Examination Department at the Bank of Japan decided to hold an international research workshop on climate-related financial risks on March 25 and 26, 2021.
The workshop will be held virtually, attended by various participants involved with this topic, such as academics, central banks, government bodies mainly represented by financial supervisory authorities, international organizations and financial institutions. On the issue of climate-related financial risks, the participants will be presenting academic papers or discuss efforts around policies related to the financial system.
A summary of the discussion will be posted on the website at a later date.
