O národnej banke, Climate and sustainability risks and opportunities – the new prosperity frontier

The National Bank of Slovakia is hosting a special one-day event focused on climate and sustainability-related risks.

The event will be streamed live via Youtube:


At a time when Europe is tackling multiple short to medium-term challenges including rising inflation and energy costs, it is imperative that we don’t lose sight of the fundamental long-term value drivers in European economies. Responding to the current energy crisis will require a mixture of extraordinary immediate policy measures, some of which will not be climate-friendly. As a consequence, climate-related risks are only set to grow.

With changing consumer and citizen preferences, growing awareness of the impact of climate change, and the wider EU push for decarbonisation under the EU Green Deal, European businesses and financial institutions must assess how these emerging risks are likely to impact their business models. Meanwhile, changes in regulatory and non-financial reporting standards and practices have increased the need to improve data collection and analysis.

The event will gather decision-makers from key sectors in Slovakia to explore the rapidly changing climate risk landscape, and to discuss how best to address the main challenges and ensure economic prosperity and financial stability.

The aim of the conference is to inspire, educate, and trigger thought-provoking discussions about how best to tackle climate risk in practice, and what it means for the competitiveness of the Slovak economy and financial sector.  Event sessions will range from interactive discussion panels to CEO and expert roundtables on specific topics, combined with a range of networking opportunities and informal conversations.
