A green mandate for the ECB? #FBFDiscuss! @ Online
May 12 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Register here

The first event of the #FBFDiscuss! series will develop around the motion: “This house believes that the ECB should include climate change mitigation within its mandate.”

Greening the mandate of the European Central Bank (ECB) is intensely debated in policy and academic circles, also in the context of its monetary policy strategy review, with results expected later in 2021. The political, economic, and legal room for manoeuvre is questioned to address the challenges posed by climate change mitigation within the central bank’s mandate. Is the ECB mandate fit for green purposes? Could the operational framework of monetary policy contribute to broader EU policies to fight climate change?
