Event Summary

How will investors respond to green fiscal policy and a new wave of action on climate targets from the world’s central bankers? Join us to find out what’s in store for 2020 as central banks and prudential regulators ramp up action on climate risk and sustainable finance.

To kick-off 2020, RI is bringing together global central banking leaders to consider how ESG and climate risk integration into central banking and monetary policy could influence the investment decision-making of global investors.

As fiscal policy makers and macroprudential regulators within the Network for Greening the Financial System get down to business, investors are waking up to the potential for climate-aligned monetary policy that could nudge economies towards alignment with the 2 degree targets committed to in the Paris Agreement. With major economies like China, India, and Mexico getting serious about financial system alignment with climate targets, who is leading?

From the integration of climate risk management into the work of supervisory authorities to the incorporation of sustainability criteria into central banks’ portfolio management functions for the world’s largest treasuries, many central banks and prudential regulators are moving faster than the investment community. This webinar is a chance for the global investment community to better understand what’s in store and to discuss investor responses to the greening of central bank balance sheets.
