Two years have passed since the European Commission published its Action Plan: Financing Sustainable Growth to mainstream sustainability into the financial system. A presentation (16′) by Mr. Arnaud Van Caenegem, PhD Researcher (KU Leuven) covers the coming about of the action plan, its objectives and the progress made, with a particular focus on the Taxonomy Regulation and the Regulation on Sustainability-related Disclosures. It also highlights the major implications of the European Green Deal for the financial sector and elaborates on the next steps in its transformation.
This presentation is part of an online seminar FinTech, Governance and Sustainability: Legal Obstacles and Regulatory Challenges.
The project stems from a partnership between the University of Exeter, the University of Geneva and KU Leuven, and falls within the Europe Network Fund (ENF). The project is supported by a University of Exeter Global Partnerships Award. The research team consists of Dr Joseph Lee, Centre for Corporate and Commercial Law, University of Exeter, Prof. Aline Darbellay, Centre for Banking and Finance Law and Department of Corporate Law, University of Geneva, and Prof. Joeri Vananroye, Institute for Commercial and Insolvency Law, KU Leuven.
