National Research University Higher School of Economics invites you to participate in our online meeting of the Discussion Club on Modern Economic Policy. At this time we will host Professor Hubert Kempf  with a presentation 

The greening of monetary policy. Why? When? How?

Abstract: Central banks have recently become aware of the economic and financial risks associated with uncontrolled global warming and have begun to mobilize. But until now, monetary policy, which is at the heart of their missions, has not been integrated into the fight against global warming. The purpose of this short presentation is to explore the challenges to monetary policy represented by climate change. 
It will briefly describe the change in transmission channels due to climate warming, the capacity of a central bank to respond, possibly by modifying the way it conducts monetary policy and its instruments. It will conclude by discussing the risks these changes represent for a central bank and the need to redefine accordingly its charter and the notion of its independence.
