Climate Risk Summit
The inaugural Climate Risk Summit will provide participants with an overview of key international standards and initiatives, tips for development of effective policy tools, and examples of cross-sectoral and cross-jurisdictional cooperation and coordination.
Why climate risk?
Climate change represents a growing important source of instability at a local as well as systemic level, creating a series of financial, operational, legal and ethical risks. This has practical implications for the work of central banks, as they increasingly acknowledge, in areas including reserve management, financial supervision, technological development and operations.
This inaugural summit, hosted by Central Banking on December 12, is dedicated to the role that central banks play in the strategic management of climate related risks.

As the home of the European Central Bank, Frankfurt is the financial capital of the Eurozone. All the big names of the international banking sector are represented in Frankfurt, and the city is also a leader in the sectors of financial research and education, underlining the city's status as one of the most important financial centres in the world.
It has wide variety of transport links, making it an easily accessible destination for neighbouring regions. Frankfurt is also a popular destination in the winter months due to its "Christkindchesmarkets" with origins dating back to 1393.
As a result, Frankfurt stands out as the obvious choice for hosting the Central Banking Climate Risk Summit.

Following Mark Carney’s “breaking the tragedy of the horizon” speech in 2015, it became apparent central banks and regulators needed to sit up and take responsibility for risks emerging as a result of climate change. It appears Carney’s call to arms was heard, but there remains an abundance of work to be undertaken, and Central Banking hopes this report will provide some guidance on issues that so desperately need to be discussed.
