Global climate challenges, innovative finance, and green central banking
Central banks, financial institutions, and large companies are increasingly embracing green finance and investment to meet climate goals and achieve carbon neutrality. Global Climate Challenges, Innovative Finance, and Green Central Banking provides a comprehensive and timely analysis of key trends in climate finance, blended finance, debt-for-climate swaps, and green monetary policies and financial supervision. The book first explores corporate management reforms for promoting sustainable business models that address global environmental, social, and governance imperatives, as well as the banking sector’s critical role in encouraging these practices among small and medium-sized enterprises. It then discusses climate finance in developing countries, including blended finance schemes to attract private capital for climate and environmental projects. It also examines debt-for-nature conservation swaps for addressing debt challenges faced by low-income countries, which are often intertwined with climate vulnerabilities.
