Climate change and the role of central banks

What connections exist between central banks and climate change, and what are the resulting implications?

Date: September 16, 2019, 8:30 am Topic: Energy & Climate

Bruegel is excited to host this event in conjunction with Narodowy Bank Polski (NBP) about the role of central banks in climate change. Climate change and government measures in response to it (transitions to a low-emissions economy) are a structural disruption. The aim of the event is to assess the impact of this disruption on the performance of the main tasks of central banks: monetary policy, financial system stability, and reserve management.

The subject of this event will be introduced and elaborated upon by Bruegel’s Non-Resident Fellow Dirk Schoenmaker. The introduction will be followed by panel discussions with participation of experts from various international financial institutions, central banks and academia.

This is an invitation-only event.

Why border carbon adjustment is important for Europe’s green deal

The European Commission President-elect Ursula von der Leyen is pursuing ambitious environmental targets, notably to reach zero net emissions across the EU by 2050. This transition requires pricing emissions to incentivise producers to develop greener alternatives, while avoiding putting domestic producers at a disadvantage.

Under swollen tides, Venice says more about our future than our past

While tides high enough to submerge Venice used to be rare, occurring every two to three decades, they have now become increasingly regular. Five of the ten highest tides in recorded history occurred over the last 20 years, with the most recent one having occurred just last year. Is this the new normal?

Four pillars to make or break the European Green Deal
