“The impacts to our physical environment and consequently the financial system in which we work are predicted to worsen rapidly. While we can collectively work towards curbing underlying causes, understanding climate change and the risks it poses prepares us as compliance officers to help our banks navigate this emerging and unprecedented risk.”
