Net Zero – The Role of Central Banks


EU-UK Forum event

Central banks are playing an essential role in building a more sustainable economy by helping financial institutions to measure and define environmental risk. What role should they themselves play as investors in their quantitative easing asset purchases? How do they encourage the financial sector to support transition to greener investment?  How do they ensure the financial sector itself grows its resilience to climate change risk?  And what do they expect from COP26?

Thursday 15 April, 15:00-16:00 BST / 16:00-17:00 CEST | Online Event

We are delighted to have two leading central bankers and advocates of action on climate change discuss these issues and shared challenges; Sylvie Goulard, Deputy Governor, Banque de France & Sarah Breeden, Executive Director UK Deposit Takers Supervision/Prudential Regulation Authority, Bank of England.
