Your function

The Sustainability Risk Officer is the subject matter expert and single point of contact at Ageas Group for quantification of sustainability risks.

Considerations around sustainabilityESG (Economic, Social & Governance) and climate change are a key part of Ageas’ multi-year strategy. Within the Risk department, sustainability risks are under increasing scrutiny. An important factor is the extent to which these risks can be quantified, both for internal risk monitoring purposes and external disclosure.

The quantitative sustainability risk function would cover or contribute to the following areas:

  • Risk identification (transition risk, physical risk, liability risk, …) in function of the agreed risk taxonomy.

  • Definition and communication of standard metrics for the measurement of sustainability related risks, which can be used for management information, risk appetite definition, and external disclosure.

  • Gap-analysis and action plan to ensure necessary capability is in place for risk quantification and its embedding in regular risk processes (Key Risk identification, ORSA, stress testing, external disclosures).

  • Engagement with internal & external providers of risk measurement capability.

  • Review & follow-up of regulatory requirements related to sustainability risk quantification, as well as evolving expectations of external stakeholders (e.g. rating agencies).
