European Sustainable Investment Policy
•The EU High-Level Expert Group on Sustainable Finance (HLEG)
•The European Commission’s policy objectives
Responsible Investor is proud to present a series of three webinars focused on European sustainable investment policy in the context of the High-Level Expert Group on Sustainable Finance (HLEG) and the stated objectives of EU Vice-President Valdis Dombrovskis.
This is a crucial time for EU policy on ESG. But how will it affect you… and your clients?
With Europe looking at investment mandates, sustainability definitions and green financing incentives, ‘the HLEG-effect’ will be far-reaching.
The series will feature senior figures from the EU, leading market participants and expert analysts.
