How can macroprudential policy mitigate climate-related systemic risk?

The joint NBS – Bruegel event, held in Bratislava, took stock of this debate and look at the experience with ‘green’ macroprudential policy so far.
Climate change and its potentially severe negative economic and financial impacts are increasingly recognized as a major systemic risk for the financial sector. Climate change entails physical risks in the form of more extreme whether events and transition risks, related to the economic costs of adjusting to a carbon neutral economy. Against this background, it is increasingly discussed, whether and how macroprudential policy can help to manage the systemic financial sector risk resulting from climate change? After all, macroprudential policy has played an important role in limiting other systemic financial stability risks since the Global Financial Crisis.
