Från Eurosif – December 2021

Publicerat av Eurosif den senaste månaden:

”Eurosif welcomes the implementation of the EU Taxonomy rules as of 1st January 2022, providing much needed clarity to companies and investors. Almost nine months after its publication, Members States have cleared the EU Taxonomy Climate delegated act, establishing technical criteria for the economic activities that contribute to the climate objectives. Eurosif welcomes this long-awaited moment. Eurosif supports the European Commission commitment to review, on a regular basis, the technical screening criteria for listed economic sectors, to ensure they continue to take account of the latest scientific evidence. While Eurosif is broadly supportive of this Climate delegated act, it is already clear that the criteria for a number of sectors will need to be re-examined to ensure this science-based alignment.” Read more>

”Last week, the European Commission made clear that the application date of the Regulatory Technical standards (RTS) for the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) will be delayed. Instead of applying as of 1st July 2022 these disclosure requirements would apply on 1st January 2023. Eurosif wants to raise awareness of the misalignments and inconsistencies that may result from the different implementation sequences of the sustainable finance requirements. These sequences may lead to more confusion rather than help the process of implementing the EU sustainable finance agenda.” See infographic on disclosure requirements here.


Press release – Publication of CMU Proposals, a milestone reinforcing sustainable finance. ”One year after the publication of the 2020 Capital Market Union Action Plan, the European Commission released today a set of four awaited legislative proposals : The European Single Access Point (ESAP), the European Long-Term Investment Funds (ELTIFs), the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) and the Markets in Financial Instruments Regulation (MiFIR). Eurosif is very supportive of this package, offering a significant opportunity to foster much needed long-term investment to underpin recovery and growth in Europe after the Covid-19 crisis and plan for the long road towards a carbon neutral economy aligned with the objectives of the Paris Agreement.” Read more>

Eurosif statement on risks arising from inclusion of natural gas & nuclear energy in the EU Taxonomy. ”The debate on the inclusion of natural gas and nuclear energy in the EU Taxonomy has intensified. It is not clear what the advantages of including these are. However, the risks of including these energy sources for the credibility of the EU sustainable finance agenda are significant. It will weaken the perception of the EU’s ambitions vis-à-vis international partners.” For Eurosif’s key messages and full statement Read more>
