What is it about?

Central banks are considering sustainable and responsible investment (SRI) in their agenda to align national financial systems towards internationally-agreed climate goals. The academic research community is also investigating how to integrate climate risk into the prudential regulation tools available to financial regulators. A concentration of research in developed countries, mainly in Europe, and a significant increase in the publication of studies has been observed in recent years. Scientific research has focused on five prudential regulatory tools: disclosure requirements, climate-related stress testing, differentiated capital requirements, targeted refinancing lines, and green finance guides and frameworks.

Why is it important?

Research gaps identified include green bubble, double materiality, interaction between policies, compound risks, banking governance, and small and medium-size enterprize (SME) banking. They are cross-cutting issues that could increase the body of knowledge on climate-related prudential regulation tools. These findings can serve as a reference for the further development of a harmonized international framework to address climate risk in banking.
