CWR Co-Authors First Ever Book on Environmental Risk Analysis For Financial Institutions

ERA book cover (2)21 April 2018 – China Water Risk co-authors the water risk chapter in the first-ever book on environmental risk analysis by financial institutions - “Green Finance Series – Environmental Risk Analysis by Financial Institutions”

As the ecological environment plays a more and more important role in business, several financial institutions have begun conducting environmental risk analyses for their portfolio/properties. For instance, ICBC has embedded environmental risk into their credit rating models for the aluminium sector.

In 2017, China’s Green Finance Committee (GFC) supported and led the research on environmental risk analysis. The final achievement of the research was the “first-ever book about environmental risk analysis” for financial institutions, “Green Finance Series – Environmental Risk Analysis by Financial Institutions”, which was pre-published in the annual conference of GFC (see five highlights from the event here).

Based on our previous work on water risk valuation, China Water Risk was invited by Dr Ma Jun, the head of the GFC, to co-author the water risk chapter of the book.
