Many states do not achieve their self-imposed climate goals. This fact indicates that the interplay between institutions and tasks in the field of climate protection is less than optimal at present. „Classic” institutions (parliaments, supreme courts, central banks) of different national legal systems and the EU will be compared and contrasted with institutions that were created or designed specifically for the purpose of climate protection (Platform on Sustainable Finance, International Sustainability Standards Board, European Financial Reporting Advisory Group).

The panel discussion is part of the kick-off-event of the CAS Research Group The Institutional Architecture for a 1.5 °C World led by Professor Ann-Katrin Kaufhold and Professor Rüdiger Veil (LMU).
