Workshop on Climate Finance

Climate change poses severe risks for our societies and financial markets. At the same time, financial markets can potentially help financial actors to hedge climate change risks and regulators to mitigate its effects. Finance research integrating insights from climate science can spur the development of new methodologies and results to address better these issues affecting the welfare of current and future generations.
The Department of Banking and Finance (DBF) of the University of Zurich has been at the forefront of climate finance research for many years. Recently, climate finance has gained traction as a new field, but many links between financial markets and climate change remain yet to be explored. The workshop aims at promoting a platform for young researchers to present their work and at the same time, discuss and develop new ideas. It will represent an opportunity for discussions on research questions around climate finance.
Target group
The workshop is primarily intended for Ph.D. students and young scholars to present their research and receive feedback from distinguished faculty.
