Good morning.

I much appreciate this invitation to close this first Mapfre Sustainable Finances Observatory Forum.

Allow me to congratulate Mapfre on this initiative and, naturally, Iberdrola and the Valladolid San Juan de Dios centre too for this well-deserved award.

As many of you will know, I have now been Deputy Governor of the Banco de Espa├▒a for a little more than two years. A glance at my public agenda over this period will show that a significant number of my public interventions address what has come to be known as "green or sustainable finances".

Yet among the public addresses by my predecessors in the post, you will find none on this subject. Nor do I think you will find many speeches on sustainability on other central bank websites that are more than two years old.
