An Unavoidable Challenge: The Changing Climate for Credit Unions

In October 2021, the U.S. Financial Stability Oversight Council released a report stating that climate change is an “emerging threat to the financial stability of the United States.” Credit unions across the country already have experienced the devastating impacts of climate-related disasters like hurricanes and wildfires and are often among the first to open their doors and provide financial support to their members even when their own systems were impaired.

Credit unions have a special opportunity to not only react to these challenges but to lead the transformational change that is necessary to confront the increasingly severe impacts of climate change and bring members and the entire consumer finance system proactively into a climate resilient future.

Filene and its research partner, Ceres, are hosting a discussion on a first-of-its-kind report for the credit union industry. This free webinar will identify a range of recommended actions credit unions can take to make climate change a strategic priority, deepen your understanding of the potential impacts from climate change and develop collective resources to measure, analyze, disclose, and mitigate their exposure.
