Central banks are increasingly concerned with the challenges posed by climate change. On the one hand, these risks could affect central banks’ ability to achieve their monetary and financial stability objectives. As such, faced with climate- related risks, central banks must ensure that their operational frameworks remain efficient. On the other hand, central banks may also consider supporting the transition to a low-carbon
economy where they have a clear policy remit to do so. The effects of climate change and action are manifold and have multi-disciplinary impact across national borders. In this lecture series, we present work on climate change in different areas of the Bundesbank in a national and international context.
