Plenary Session:

Central Banks and Supervisors input on greening the financial system

Central Banks and Supervisors play a unique role in the financial system, securing its overall structure and mobilizing capita, on the global as well as the local level. Through the “Network of Central Banks and Supervisors for Greening the Financial System” (NGFS), their collaboration at an international scale is a potent signal for the development of an adequate policy framework for sustainable finance. Which tools can supervisors and regulators use to ease the transition towards a low carbon economy? This session will aim to present the networks’ activities with a high-level analysis of regulators objectives and progresses.
