Climate Risk 101: Perspectives from a scientist, a civil servant and an actuary

Thursday 25 June 2020 14:30 - 15:30

This webinar has now reached capacity. Please add your details to the wait list. If a space becomes available you shall be notified. This recording will be made available post the event on the Virtual Learning Environment platform. 

Climate change represents a material risk to future financial stability and creates implications for the work, actions and decision making of actuaries. Join us to learn about the science behind global warming and what that means for policy makers and society over the coming decades. We will then look at how the UK Government’s first ever Green Finance Strategy responds to what the science of climate change means for financial services, how we can green the financial system, finance our green priorities and capture the opportunity that a global market for green financial services presents.


  • Dr Louise Pryor, IFoA President-Elect and Chair of the London Climate Change Partnership
  • Dr Rhian Rees-Owen, Senior Climate Science Adviser, Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy
  • Ed Hogg, Head of Green Finance, Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy
