You are invited to submit a paper to the Symposium on climate change, financial markets and green growth, organised by the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR), the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (ERBD), and the ECB.

  • climate risks faced by households, firms, investors and banks;
  • environmental policies and macroeconomic dynamics;
  • climate change, financial stability and prudential supervision;
  • incorporating climate change into macroeconomic modelling and growth forecasts;
  • measuring the costs of climate change as well as climate change mitigation and adaptation;
  • greening the financial system;
  • the impact of environmental quality on individual productivity, employment, and well-being;
  • the role of governments and firms in fighting climate change;
  • firm-level energy efficiency and how to improve it;
  • corporate environmental responsibility;
  • stranded assets for energy and carbon-intensive industries.

The cost of accommodation and travel will be covered for speakers and discussants.
