SustainabilityFocusThe transition plans to carbon neutrality within an appropriate time frame recommended by the COP and domestic law and policymakers involve a number of risks inherent both in the implementation of the plans drawn up and in unforeseen factors. Examples include stranded assets, borrowers’ defaults, defective information models, insufficient resources, climate casualties, social movements, etc. Financial institutions that are called upon to fund green infrastructure projects and to support the necessary systemic reallocation of capital and investments, must look to mitigate their own risks and offer their clients new financial products allowing them to hedge those risks. The purpose of this panel session is to identify the issues that lawyers advising financial institutions and funds must navigate and to consider the mechanisms and products used for hedging these risks.

SUSTAINABILITY FOCUS sessions marked as such are part of the IBA Annual Conference 2022 sustainability focus on Tuesday and Thursday, grouping sessions discussing different aspects of ESG and sustainability across the different legal fields.
