Environmental and climate protection ranks among the most pressing global challenges of our time and has become an increasingly important concern for society as a whole. This means that public institutions, including most central banks, need to take this aspect into account when performing their tasks. At the Deutsche Bundesbank, improving our environmental impact by minimising our ecological footprint is integral to our strategy.
