Welcome and Introduction


Sustainability risks and what it should really mean to risk managers

EU legislation is pointing towards a direction where eliciting clients’ true sustainability preferences will be mandatory in the foreseeable future. But then the question emerges: how to measure these preferences? Whether and how to harmonise the elicitation method? How to prevent biases in clients’ preferences? How to prevent that clients are pushed into the wrong direction by financial institutions? These questions are very much connected to strategic business risks that financial institutions are exposed to in the current greening of the financial system.
