Climate protection: state of play, division of labor, steps forward

Event organized by the OeNB in cooperation with SUERF – The European Money and Finance Forum

This high-level event starts with a bird’s-eye view of the current state of play in global and European steps towards climate protection. Next, it raises the question which policy areas, which mix of measures, and thus which actors are best suited to achieve the necessary results to comply globally agreed emission goals. The issues of the policy mix and of policy coordination – globally, in Europe but also between different policy areas - are highlighted. Finally, these considerations aim to identify concrete steps forward.
