On July 12th, Banco de España will host an online conference with Dr. Ben Caldecott who is Lombard Odier Associate Professor & Senior Research Fellow of Sustainable Finance at University of Oxford, where he also serves as Director of the Sustainable Finance Programme at Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment.
Dr. Caldecott is a pioneer in the field of green finance, and has been appointed Strategy Advisor for Finance by the UK Cabinet Office for the next COP26 in Glasgow. During the conference he will talk about his work as Director of the UK Centre for Greening Finance & Investment (CGFI), a national centre established to accelerate the adoption and use of climate and environmental data and analytics by financial institutions internationally.

He will guide us through the topic of “Spatial finance” as the integration of geospatial data and analysis into financial theory and practice, and how increasing availability and quality of spatial information will profoundly change how climate and environmental risks, opportunities, and impacts are measured and managed by financial institutions.
