Momentum is building around sustainable finance. After the Paris Agreement and UN Sustainable Development Goals last year, we have seen initiatives at a global and EU level. These include the Financial Stability Board’s Taskforce on Climate- related Disclosures and the G20 Green Finance Study Group, as well as EU member state initiatives such as France’s climate-reporting law.
With new European Commissioner for Financial Services, Valdis Dombrovskis, wanting to ‘encourage institutional investors to take account of sustainability considerations’, EURACTIV invites you to a roundtable discussion on questions such as:
- What are the risks – in financial terms – posed by climate change and other sustainability issues?
- How can the EU ensure financiers act in a sustainable way?
- What role can the EU play in taking forward recommendations from initiatives such as the Financial Stability Board (FSB) Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures?
- How can the EU increase awareness among consumers of how savings and pensions can be invested in a sustainable way?
