ESG impact on Credit Risk: Navigating through challenges

As challenges in the economy increase, integrating ESG criteria into credit risk assessment is becoming increasingly necessary for businesses. By ensuring that companies consider environmental, social, and governance aspects in their decision-making, their long-term success and competitiveness are enhanced. Companies that focus on ESG, create lasting value for all stakeholders and contribute to a more sustainable and balanced world.Additionally, the role of AI opens up new prospects for assessing and managing risks for businesses in an environment of constant uncertainty.

 

The Conference will focus on the following topics:

  • Continuing economic instability has presented difficulties for companies regarding credit risk management
  • Integrating ESG and Climate Risks in Risk Management
  • The Transformation of Credit Risk Management by AI
  • Unlocking Financial Potential: Harnessing Tech for Prosperous Credit Journeys

Topics

  • Continuing economic instability has presented difficulties for companies regarding credit risk management

In 2024, in an evolving economic environment, traditional methods of assessing credit risk appear to be insufficient, with businesses looking for more accurate and adaptive methods. Using AI and applying ESG criteria is the next bet for a sustainable business.

 

  • Integrating ESG and Climate Risks in Risk Management

The integration of ESG and climate risk factors into the credit risk assessment model is necessary for businesses, with banks playing a key role in their adoption to achieve improved access and terms of financing for companies.

 

  • The Transformation of Credit Risk Management by AI

The use of AI and machine learning algorithms in credit risk management automates the analysis of large volumes of data and provides faster and more accurate assessments, outperforming traditional methods.

 

  • Unlocking Financial Potential: Harnessing Tech for Prosperous Credit Journeys

The use of Privacy-Enhancing Technologies (PETs) allows businesses to analyze data and make decisions without threatening the privacy or security of personal data, while ensuring compliance with data protection regulations (GDPR).

Credit Risk in the age of Crisis Continuum

In an era of increased uncertainty, identifying, assessing and managing credit risk is a priority for all businesses.

 

This year’s Conference will focus on the following themes:

  • Macro Risks in the Age of Social, Sovereign and Geopolitical Instability

Topics

  • Macro Risks in the Age of Social, Sovereign and Geopolitical Instability

The succession of crises at the international and national levels forms a complex macroeconomic and business environment picture. What instability conditions do borrowers, financiers, and market institutions have to cope with?

 

  • Climate Change and ESG Risks in Debt and Equity Corporate Finance

Climate change is the most drastic risk factor in the context of ESG sustainability in terms of the irreversibility of its effects. How does it prioritize and co-construct in the ESG framework the new corporate finance terms?

 

  • Technology Disruption Risk in Finance

What are the opportunities and threats from the accelerating entry of new technologies into the economy, such as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Automation and Robotics, Cyber Security Advances, Edge Computing, Headless Tech, “As-a-Service” Computing, Decentralized Finance? How do they affect finance’s availability, speed, and quality?

 

  • Compliance – Optimal Risk Screening

As the economy faces a series of interconnected risks in the context of ongoing crises, how necessary is access to legal audit information of companies and executives, international sanctions, and money laundering?

 

 

Workshop

  • The Workshop that will be held on the topic of “Cases of Applied ESG Failure Risk Ratings for Corporates” will also be of great interest.

The sustainability assessment of companies is usually based on the examination of their degree of compliance with ESG behavioral criteria. However, this picture ignores the possibility of ESG failure despite compliance as well as vice versa.
The workshop will present the ESG Failure Risk Rating methodology, developed by ICAP CRIF Credit Rating Agency, and discuss the results of company ratings from different sectors of the economy.

Credit Risk in the Age of ESG Sustainable Finance

Sustainable ESG finance is destined to redetermine the way we think about credit. Key driver is the component of credit risk attributed to ESG risks. A relationship which is expected to transform not only credit granting criteria, but also the formation of corporate and structured debt instruments. Creditors, investors, and policy makers alike are in search of a “greenium” in debt pricing, assessing new balances between macro-financial risks, required returns and policy objectives. Our ICAP CRIF 2022 Conference brings together leading market experts to address the challenge of sustainable finance in a practical decision-making context.
The Conference will be held in a hybrid format (physical presence at the Divani Caravel Hotel and online).

Topics

The conference covers the following topics:

 

Session 1
Macro and Financial Stability Risks of ESG Transition
In a constantly evolving environment, markets witness increasingly severe and disturbing shocks, originated in the spheres of the economy, society, environment, and geopolitics. This session provides an assessment of the economy-wide risk profile and addresses key policy making in the context of global ESG sustainability agenda.

 

Session 2
Credit vs ESG Ratings in Sustainability Transition Economies
ESG risk is emerging as the key driver in sustainable finance. How does one measure and forecast ESG risk? What is the effect of expected ESG risk on credit risk? And how key credit and investment decisions are affected? This session is designed to provide conference attendees with clear and empirically validated answers.

 

Session 3
The Challenge of Accessing Corporate ESG Credit
Corporate financing criteria are rapidly being transformed through expected ESG risk forecasts. How do credit institutions and debt investors change their risk preferences and appetite? How does “greenium” get offered in the market? This session is designed to provide conference attendees with answers enhancing access to sustainable finance options.

 

Session 4
The Emergence of ESG Corporate Bonds and Securitization Debt
New ESG asset classes emerge along with investor appetite and policy-making initiatives, redefining both corporate bonds and structured finance debt notes. Which criteria should be satisfied? What is the level of acceptable ESG risk and how is “greenium” realized in the pricing of corporate and structured debt? This session is designed to provide conference attendees with analysis on the existing and expected benefits and risks of market based ESG financing.

 

Workshop
Legal and Regulatory Requirements in ESG Credit & Investment for Corporates and SMEs.Corporate sustainable finance is conditioned on a continuously developing framework of legal and regulatory requirements. This session is designed to provide conference attendees with a state-of-the-art practical guide on the legal and regulatory requirements of ESG financing, both through credit institutions and investor channels. The session will be delivered by a major law firm and a panel of legal and regulation experts.
