About this talk

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. European Sustainable Investment Policy: Series 2/3 GREEN BANKING INCENTIVES The most controversial idea that has been floated is for banks to get lower capital charges if they invest in green projects and companies. This throws up a lot of questions, not least the role of securitisation and the broader implications for responsible investment. Speakers: Raymond Frenken, Head of Communications & CSR, European Banking Federation Sini Matikainen, Policy Analyst at the Grantham Research Institute, London School of Economics Alberto Postigo, Senior Credit Officer, Moody’s Investor Service Marie Louise Andersen, Policy Advisor, the European Mortgage Federation-European Covered Bond Council Moderator: Sophie Robinson-Tillett, Deputy Editor, Responsible Investor
