After more than 70 years of intensive economic growth with its wealth-increasing effect, the negative ecological and social limits of this development are becoming increasingly clear:

Financing the social-ecological transformation

Tue April 23, 2024, 7:00 pm

With: Prof. Ulrich Klüh,  Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences

Response: Georg Schürmann, Managing Director Triodos Bank NV Germany

When we hear the term “financing social-ecological transformation,” we usually think of sustainable equity funds or the federal government's climate and transformation fund. But what role do savings banks and Volksbanks actually play? What can the ECB do? And which tax system can best be used to finance public investments in climate protection? But do these questions really get to the heart of the problem? Prof. Ulrich Klüh will speak about the nexus of money and matter: plurality and materiality of transformation financing.
