Join us on 9 November from 11:00 – 12:30 CET for a virtual panel discussion, organised by EU40 and the European Parliament’s Panel for the Future of Science and Technology (STOA) on the topic of: “Sustainable finance: How AI can help account for climate risks”.
The event will be hosted by MEP Eva Kaili, EU40 President & STOA Chair.
How can machine learning help markets identify and price climate risks? Can AI help us set more ambitious climate goals? In what way will AI revolutionise predictive finance? What are the risks of delegating sustainable finance decisions to autonomous systems? What are the implications for regulators?
The financial sector mobilises the resources and investments for modern economies to generate growth. To ensure its sustainability, market and investors must be able to price climate risks and take into account the environmental and social impact of businesses and services. Significant advances in machine learning and the increasing digitalisation of the economy make AI a powerful ally in this quest.
The event brings together various policymakers, civil society, and academia. Speakers will discuss how digital technologies, specifically AI, can boost sustainability in the financial sector and lead to better predictive analyses.
Confirmed speakers include:
· Mairead McGuinness, European Commissioner for Financial Services, Financial Stability and Capital Markets Union
· Typhaine Beaupérin, CEO & Secretary General, FERMA
· Prof. George Skiadopoulos, Queen Mary University of London & University of Piraeus
· Dr. Kirsten Dunlop, CEO, EIT Climate-KIC
· Dimitris Zafeiris, Head of Risks & Financial Stability, EIOPA
· MEP Mikuláš Peksa (Greens/EFA, Czechia)
