EU-wide pilot exercise on climate risk

The EU-wide pilot exercise on climate risk aims at mapping banks’ exposures to climate risk and at providing an insight into the green estimation efforts banks have carried out so far. The EU-wide pilot exercise was run by EBA on a sample of 29 volunteer banks from 10 countries,  representing 50% of the EU banking sector’s total assets, which provided raw data on non-SME corporate exposures to EU domiciled obligors. The exercise focused on the identification and quantification of exposures from a climate perspective, in particular, on transition risk.
