Bank Carbon Risk Index – A simple indicator of climate-related transition risks of lending activity

László Bokor

No 2021/141, MNB Occasional Papers from Magyar Nemzeti Bank (Central Bank of Hungary)

Abstract: I propose a simple indicator of climate-related transition risks of banks’ lending activity based on transaction-level loan data. The underlying idea is that the higher the greenhouse gas intensity of an economic activity (and so a debtor), the higher its transition risk. Recent Hungarian trends of this indicator alerts to significantly regrowing risks.
