Financing the EU Green Deal - Policy Breakfast Series #4

Wednesday, 29 September 2021, 08:45 - 09:30 CET

What are the European Commission's next actions on the governance of sustainable finance? How can they address greenwashing and achieve tangible environmental and social impacts?

FEPS will address these topics with Martin Spolc, Head of the Sustainable Finance Unit of the EU Commission's DG FISMA, in Episode 4 of its Policy Breakfast Series "Financing the EU Green Deal".


#4 Sustainable Finance and the Issue of Greenwashing
Wednesday, 29 September 2021, 08:45 - 09:30 CET

With the spectacular growth of sustainable finance offerings over the past years, instances of greenwashing have proliferated. Furthermore, critics argue that despite the record sums invested, it remains difficult to discern sustainable finance's real impacts on environmental and social matters.

Nevertheless, the EU played a leading role in advancing sustainable finance, and the Commission's stance on this topic will most probably shape its future.

This Policy Breakfast will feature a short presentation on the Commission's policy initiatives on sustainable finance by Mr Martin Spolc, followed by the interventions of two discussants.

Andreas Dimmelmeier, FEPS Policy Analyst on Climate and Environment, will moderate the session.
