The EU Sustainable Finance Strategy was published by the European Commission one year ago on 6 July 2021. It is built on previous initiatives and reports, such as the report of the High-Level Expert Group on Sustainable Finance and the subsequent legislative package in 2018. The Strategy sets out how it will support the EU Green Deal and Europe’s transition to becoming a carbon-neutral continent by 2050.
In our position paper on the EU sustainable finance – one year after, we explain our main positions on relevant topics and initiatives, including:
- Double materiality
- Extended taxonomy
- Social taxonomy
- Non-financial reporting and accounting standards
- Financial literacy
- Systemic risks
- ESG data
