Bruegel is excited to host this event in conjunction with Narodowy Bank Polski (NBP) about the role of central banks in climate change. Climate change and government measures in response to it (transitions to a low-emissions economy) are a structural disruption. The aim of the event is to assess the impact of this disruption on the performance of the main tasks of central banks: monetary policy, financial system stability, and reserve management.

The subject of this event will be introduced and elaborated upon by Bruegel's Non-Resident Fellow Dirk Schoenmaker. The introduction will be followed by panel discussions with participation of experts from various international financial institutions, central banks and academia.

This is an invitation-only event.
