On 8th December 2022, the Basel Committee published a set of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), in which issues concerning climate-related financial risks and how they are captured in the Pillar 1 standards are addressed. The publication contains a number of answers to the first set of FAQs on how the impact of climate risk factors should be taken into account when applying the regulatory approaches for the measurement of credit risk, operational risk, market risk and liquidity risks as laid down in the finalised Basel III standards (“Basel IV”).
