Green Finance Research Advances 2022

Welcome to the 7th edition of the annual conference “Green Finance Research Advances”, co-organised by Banque de France and Institut Louis Bachelier.

The objective of this conference is to bring together academics, finance practitioners and regulators, to discuss together research issues related to the integration of climate risks (more generally, environmental issues) into macro-economic modelling/forecasting and into the risk assessment of the financial sector.

While climate risks have much longer time horizons than traditional financial risks and cannot be dealt with without a clear understanding of long-term phenomena governing the joint evolution of climate and the economy, the short and medium-term aspects of energy transition are crucial for an orderly transition and are perhaps less well studied in the economic literature. This upcoming 7th Green Finance Research Advances therefore aims to highlight the short and medium-term climate risks and obstacles to energy transition and the role of central banks in addressing them.

Call for Papers

The Institut Louis Bachelier and the Banque de France have the pleasure to invite academics, regulators and professionals to submit research papers for a special issue of the Review of World Economics peer-reviewed leading journal, which will be building on the themes of the Green Finance Research Advances conference organized last December.


“Advances in Green Finance Research: Rethinking the horizon
of climate-related risks and implications for the financial system”


Climate-related risks to the financial system require a clear understanding of long-term phenomena governing the joint evolution of climate and the economy. The latest IPCC reports highlighted however that the 1.5°C warming threshold could be reached between 2030-52 without an ambitious climate policy, with probable irreversible consequences on ecosystems and economic implications that are difficult to estimate.

Calls have therefore multiplied to accelerate the pace of the transition to a low-carbon economy. The short and medium-term aspects of this transition are crucial for an orderly transition and have been less well studied so far.

This call for papers aims to highlight the short and medium-term climate risks and obstacles to the transition to Net Zero, and the role of central banks in addressing them.

We welcome the submission of research papers on the following and other relevant topics:

  • Climate-related financial risks and their transmission channels to the real economy (including sector-specific transmission channels of climate risks to financial stability)
  • Climate-economy scenarios, scenario uncertainty, stress testing (including and possibly combining both physical and transition risks)
  • Transition risks in the short and medium term, and the associated macroeconomic impacts
  • Transition, energy prices and financial stability (also short and medium-term impact of the war in Ukraine on the transition)
  • Obstacles to green transition: investment gap, greenflation, inequality/social aspects, lack of international cooperation
  • Compounding effects, cascades and tipping points in physical and transition risks
  • Climate risks, asset pricing and financial market dynamics
  • Net zero scenarios and portfolio alignment analysis
  • Data sets and data processing methodologies related to the above topics


We invite academics, regulators and professionals to submit research papers for the special issue of the Review of World Economics by June 30, 2023.

To submit a manuscript please visit www.editorialmanager.com/rowe/ and choose “S.I. : Advances in Green Finance Research” as “Manuscript type” during the submission process.
