Irene Monasterolo - Researcher of the Month - July 2021
Central banks and financial regulators are increasingly aware that climate change poses a major threat to economic and financial stability. Investors and financial markets are also subject to climate-related risks. This means that climate change will have long-term effects on everyone’s prosperity: This is the conclusion reached by Senior Assistant Professor Irene Monasterol from WU’s Institute for Ecological Economics. Together with researchers from the University of Zurich and the Paris School of Economics, Irene Monasterolo has developed a “climate stress test” to help evaluate the level of climate-related risk for investment portfolios. The methodology involves financial network modeling as well as a new classification of economic activities, grouping them into sectors relevant to climate policy based on their climate risk exposure. This method allows climate mitigation scenarios to be integrated into standard financial risk metrics and portfolio analysis.

Bei Zentralbanken und Finanzaufsichtsbehörden wächst zunehmend das Bewusstsein, dass der Klimawandel eine neue Risikoquelle für die wirtschaftliche und finanzielle Stabilität darstellt. Auch Finanzakteur/innen sind den Klimarisiken ausgesetzt. Der Klimawandel hat somit langfristige Auswirkungen auf unser aller Wohlstand, so das Ergebnis einer Studie von Assistenzprofessorin Irene Monasterolo, Institut für Ecological Economics der Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien (WU).
Gemeinsam mit Forscher/innen der Universität Zürich und der Paris School of Economics hat Irene Monasterolo einen so genannten "Klimastresstest" entwickelt, mit dessen Hilfe die Klimarisiken auf Anlageportfolios bewertet werden können. Die Methodik basiert auf einer neuen Klassifizierung von wirtschaftlichen Aktivitäten, basierend auf ihrer Klima-Risikoexposition, durch Gruppierung in klimapolitisch relevante Sektoren und auf der Modellierung von Finanznetzwerken. Diese Methode ermöglicht es, Klimaminderungsszenarien in Standard-Finanzrisikometriken und in die Portfolioanalyse zu integrieren.
