|Press release| Chappuis Halder & Co. announces the launches of its new ESG and Climate Risk website

Chappuis Halder & Co. announces the launches of its new ESG and Climate Risk website.

Chappuis Halder & Co., a leading specialist international financial consultancy is pursuing its mission in providing expert services to financial institutions in the ESG & Climate Risk management area. The firm just launched a new website: the one-stop source for all ESG and climate risk regulation.

This service is designed to help financial services professionals build their integrated ESG – Climate risk roadmap. For the past 6 months, a team of experts led by Benoit Genest, Partner at Chappuis Halder & Co. in Paris and Head of the Lab in Budapest, have analyzed more than 30 regulatory texts and identified 380 extracts in Europe, North America, and Asia to provide a trustworthy and comprehensive source with all the publications required for a tailored regulation watch on a fast-moving topic.

Our dedicated international expert task force, including Eric Tordjman Director in Montreal, Loic Paquotte Director in Geneva, and Augustin Beyot Director in Paris, will update the website as new regulations come up to offer an up-to-date source and help financial actors to keep up with the latest publications.

The website was developed by the Chappuis Halder & Co’s Lab in Budapest, created in 2018 to accelerate innovation by developing tactical technological solutions for clients and internal projects.

What can financial services professionals find on this platform?

For Benoit Genest, “The multiplication of regulatory papers documents addressing climate and environmental challenges paradoxically complicates interpretation. To ensure that these texts are legible and understandable, it is crucial to be able to follow them and, more importantly, to assess them across all of the topics they cover. This is precisely what CH&Co accomplishes by assembling a selection of recent texts and providing an interpretation or reading, relevant to the financial sector’s most pressing issues.

The audience will have access to a range of information through a Regulatory timeline, to visualize all the regulatory and up to date important texts, a Regulatory search entry, allowing access to international & national texts relevant to your perimeter, a Glossary to understand ESG and climate risk terms and Recommended readings.

How does this new website fit into the Chappuis Halder & Co. strategy to help financial services professionals achieve their ESG transformation?

For Stéphane Eyraud, Chappuis Halder &Co. CEO, “The promises made at COP 21 in Paris have not been met with adequate action. Despite this, Chappuis Halder and the people who run it are more focused than ever on the 1.5C goal. We are committed to contributing to the climate transition, whether as individuals or as a corporation, through daily actions or medium-term plans for ourselves or our clients.“

For Benoit Genest, Our organization, which has already taken significant stances on ESG and climate concerns, reaffirms its strategy on a positioning where its expertise is strongest. Our in-depth knowledge of the financial sector and its regulatory complexities enables us to assist financial institutions in interpreting and implementing climate and ESG issues. This is part of a broader strategy of our firm.  We believe that this subject is interconnected with all others and that it will form the financial industry’s face for years to come. This echoes the climatic, societal, environmental, and energy challenges that the players must be prepared to confront in the coming years.”
