Presented by

Responsible Investor

About this talk

The EU’s Technical Expert Group on Sustainable Finance (TEG) released the final report on the new green taxonomy on 10 March. This first webinar of RI’s spring EU Action Plan webinar series will explore the advice made by the TEG, its practicality for investment outcomes, and its effects on other green finance policies and investment products including the EU Green Bond Standard, and the EU Ecolabel for finance products. How are companies and investors responding? Led by Hugh Wheelan, RI co-founder and joint managing director, this Q&A session will look at: - What are the most important elements of the March 10 technical guidance from the TEG to the European Commission, and where exactly is the Taxonomy at in terms of applicability and relevance? - How are companies already responding to the Taxonomy: market examples. What could this mean going forward: comply or explain: what would comply look like, or why explain, and what would explain look like? - How do investment managers view the Taxonomy in terms of investment applicability, reporting, product development and strategic relevance. - How will the Taxonomy actually mobilise corporate activity and investment? Speakers: Brenda Kramer, Senior Advisor Responsible Investment, PGGM and Member of Technical Expert Group on Sustainable Finance, European Commission Seb Beloe, Partner and Head of Research, WHEB Asset Management Nicolas Redon, Senior Analyst - Green Finance, Novethic Moderator: Hugh Wheelan, Co-Founder and Joint Managing Director, Responsible Investor
