Event dates: 14 - 15 November 2016
Climate change and other environmental challenges are moving up policy agendas worldwide. Nonetheless, the potential implications of environmental risks and scarcities for central banking as well as the linkages between financial regulation, monetary policy and environmental sustainability remain largely unexplored.
Against this background, the Council on Economic Policies (CEP) and the Bank of England (BoE) are organizing a workshop on Central Banking, Climate Change and Environmental Sustainability, on November 14-15, 2016 at the Bank of England in London, UK.
The event will bring together researchers from academia, central banks, and other non-academic research institutions. It is part of a larger CEP program on monetary policy and sustainability, and a contribution towards the core research theme 5 (“Response to Fundamental Change”) of the BoE’s One Bank Research Agenda.
