What the upcoming EU taxonomy and non-financial disclosure requirements mean for investors and corporates.
We have the pleasure of inviting you to a seminar on February 6, co-arranged by FIBS, Finland’s Sustainable Investment Forum and SEB.
EU launched its sustainable finance roadmap in March 2018 to facilitate private investments to close the estimated annual €180 billion gap of additional investments needed to meet the EU’s climate targets. To facilitate “greening” of the financial system, the EU Commission’s Technical Expert Group on Sustainable Finance (TEG) is laying ground by defining sustainable economic activities from a climate change and environmental perspective, increasing companies’ disclosure requirements on the impacts of climate change, creating standards for green bond issuance and low-carbon equity benchmarks.
Members of TEG: Nathan Fabian, UN PRI and rapporteur of the taxonomy subgroup and Marie Baumgarts, SEB and member of the corporate disclosure subgroup will outline the TEG action plan context and timeline with focus on the status of taxonomy and corporate disclosure around climate change.
Comments by Chairman of FINSIF Lea Jääskeläinen (FIM) and CEO of FIBS Mikko Routti followed by a Q&A.
Please join us for an interesting discussion with the TEG members.
