What’s in OSFI’s climate risk management guideline, and how can firms prepare?
Canada’s Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (OSFI) published a climate risk management guideline for banks, insurers, credit unions, and other financial firms on May 26.

The guideline includes detailed expectations for how financial institutions should understand and manage the potential impacts of climate risks on their business models. It also lays out expectations on climate governance, climate disclosure, and climate risk management practices, plus guidance on the use of climate scenario analysis.

In this special webinar, Manifest Climate Editorial Lead Louie Woodall, together with Julie Segal, Senior Program Manager, Climate Finance, from Environmental Defense Canada, and Nezihe Aquino, Chief Risk Officer from Vancity, will provide an overview of the climate risk guideline and what it means for Canada’s federally regulated financial institutions. Panelists will discuss how companies can prepare to meet the supervisor’s expectations and what tools and processes they should draw on to ensure they are fully aligned with the guideline.

Panelists will also explore the similarities and differences between the guideline and similar climate risk management expectations issued by financial regulators in other jurisdictions, and how the guideline may be improved to ensure Canada’s financial system is resilient to climate risks.
