Climate change - a looming challenge for the world, and now the banks
This paper discusses how banks can prepare for future technological innovations, with a focus on the post-trade process where we see most of the ongoing and planned activities taking place. It also presents an outlook into the coming years and opportunities in securities processing, highlight where and how modern technologies and services can be used to perfect processes, and examine new products that are ‘thinkable’ in banking. Capco has undertaken a high-level review of 33 banks globally that have committed to producing disclosures aligned to the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). This paper assesses each of the banks’ climate-related reporting against six key criteria.
This paper states three things banks should be doing, including:
- Focus on the ‘exam question’ and critically assess your own disclosures against them.
- Understand what is left to do – and be open about how and when you will achieve it.
- Identify the data required to deliver.
