Sustainable Finance - State of Play

Sustainable Finance - State of Play Briefing

Sustainability in finance has gained traction in the last decade. In 2015, the need for this to happen on a larger scale was formally recognised with the adoption of the UN 2030 Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement. To achieve the EU’s 2030 targets agreed in Paris, including a 40% cut in greenhouse gas emissions, the European Commission (‘The Commission’) estimates an investment gap of 180 billion EUR per year will have to be filled.

Yet, many questions remain open. What exactly is the difference between a “normal” investment and a sustainable investment? Do investment firms have to go beyond “negative screening”, i.e. the exclusion of assets deemed unsavoury?
