The main objective of the Chair in International Finance - Banco Santander of the University of Valencia is to conduct training, cultural, research and university extension activities oriented towards the continuous improvement of knowledge in the field of international finance. This time, the training activities of the Chair will focus on the existing connections between Finance and Global Warming. Climate change is a global phenomenon with repercussions at international, national and local levels. The restriction on CO2 emission is a fact at the European level that is affecting countries and large businesses that emit polluting gases. Furthermore, it should be noted that other companies and sectors, whose production is linked to climate, are already suffering the effects of climate risk on their balance sheets. This conference will study three specific aspects:

  1. Analyze the role that climate plays in the risk society in general and economics in particular.
  2. Investigate the financial risks and opportunities arisen from the restriction on polluting gases.
  3. Study the different solutions that financial markets can bring to businesses to adapt and/or manage the risk of climate change. For the development of these issues, we have thought of a multidisciplinary team of researchers from different areas (Economics, Law and Physics), as well as professionals from the insurance industry and corporate banking.
