Financial regulators, such as the European Central Bank and the Fed in the United States, are actively considering their role in solving global crises, such as climate change and the current pandemic. Likewise, private institutions like banks, investment funds, and others are taking active steps to promote a transition to a low-carbon economy.

This panel will discuss what these regulators and firms are doing to address these crises, and what more they can do to promote the transition to a low-carbon economy going forward.
