Sustainable Finance: Mobilizing capital through regulation and private sector

3.6.2019 @ 08:15 - 12:00

The event will address the following topical themes with keynotes and panel discussions with a wide range of experts representing key stakeholders from the private and public sectors:

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. In March 2019, the sustainability related disclosure regulation for financial services sector reached a trialogue agreement and further legislative negotiations are in the agenda during Finland’s Presidency of the Council of the EU. What regulations are in the process and will they achieve the intended consequences.

The first green bond was issued just over a decade ago and the market has developed globally on a self-regulated basis reaching close to USD 180 billion issuance in 2018. EU Commission’s Technical Expert Group on Sustainable Finance (TEG) is expected to finalize its ground breaking work during summer and for example set definitions for sustainable economic activities from climate change mitigation and adaptation perspective and create EU standards for green bond issuance.
