In June 2020, the European Parliament had adopted the Taxonomy Regulation, following the publication of the Technical Expert Group’s Technical Report on the EU Taxonomy and on the EU Green Bond Standard (March 2020). These publications contain key information on the functioning of these instruments, clearing the air on many technical issues and providing evidence of the fact that implementation process of the EU Action Plan on Sustainable Finance has not been halted.
The epidemiological crisis has affected both the real economy and the financial system, but as it has been stated by the European Commission, the COVID-19 outbreak stresses the urgency of reinforcing the sustainability and resilience of our societies and the ways in which our economic systems work.
On July 23rd, Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei, Italian Sustainable Investmen Forum (ItaSIF) and Nedcommunity will present an update on the EU’s Action Plan on Sustainable Finance implementation process.
With the participation of the DeRisk-CO network, the event will be the occasion to discuss with the Group Sustainability Manager of the London Stock Exchange Group and TEG Member the state of the art and on the next steps that need to be made to further implement the Action Plan and achieve the targets that the European Commission has set within the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda and the sustainable development goals framework.
