The NGFS released a report entitled “Adapting central bank operations to a hotter world: Reviewing some options” which assesses nine options available to central banks to factor climate-related risks into their operational framework. Sabine Mauderer, Chair of the NGFS’ “Scaling-up green finance” workstream and executive board member of the Deutsche Bundesbank: “Central banks ought to be aware of climate risks for the integrity of their balance sheets. Even more so, they should get ready to respond to such risks swiftly and with determination. Our report is a great blueprint to support central banks in making strategic choices on how to reflect climate risk in their monetary policy operations.”
