Forum Climate Economics 11 on March 3

The recent controversy over the inclusion of gas and nuclear energy in the EU taxonomy brought attention to this key pillar of the Euro­pean sustainable finance agenda. The tax­ono­my is set to come into effect in 2022 as the European Union's classification system for sustainable investments. It attributes a central role to the financial sector in the transformation to a climate-neutral economy.

The Forum Climate Economics 11 "The Financial Sector as Climate Protector? The Potential of Sustainable Finance" discusses the relation between the financial market policy measures contained in the taxonomy and the national Sustainable Finance Strategy and climate policy measures already taken, such as the European Emissions Trading Scheme, in an online event on March 03. To what extent are these fields of action interlinked? ...

Climate Cabinet Simulation Game

In March 2019, the German federal government established the so-called "Climate Cabinet". The goal of the ministers represented in the cabinet is to implement effective climate policy. The Climate Foundation for Citizens Sinsheim and ZEW Mannheim developed a simulation game for pupils which makes climate policy decision-making processes tangible and conveys climate economics in a vivid way.

The Dialogue

The future development of climate change strongly depends on the current decisions about investments, consumption and regulation in the economy, society and politics. At the same time all areas area already affected by climate change impacts. However, knowledge about their interrelation and the efficient instruments for practicable climate policy are often missing. Therefore, the BMBF funding measure Economics of Climate Change II  sponsors 29 research projects that provide solution-oriented knowledge in the field of climate economics.

Dialog bei der Kick-off Konferenz

The multitude of results will be communicated beyond the boundaries of the research com­munity. In order to support this transfer of knowledge and to inten­sify the exchange between scientists and practitioners, the fund­ing measure is sup­ported by the Dialogue on the Economics of Climate Change. Invited to dialogue with climate economists are societal, commercial and (non-)governmental stakeholders.
