Bank of England consults on its proposals for stress testing the financial stability implications of climate change

Sarah Breeden the Executive Director sponsor for climate change said “None of us can know exactly how climate change will unfold, but we do know that it will create risks to the financial system. I am excited that this ground-breaking exercise will for the first time allow us to quantify this risk and so determine the actions we need to take today if we are to minimise these future risks.”

The Bank is consulting on the design of the exercise and welcomes feedback on the feasibility and the robustness of these proposals from firms, their counterparties, climate scientists, economists and other industry experts by 18 March 2020.  The final BES framework will be published in the second half of 2020 and the results of the exercise will be published in 2021.
