Sustainable investment: Better safe than sorry

Several Advisory Councils for Sustainable Development work on the issue of Sustainable Finance. The EEAC Network is glad to facilitate European cooperation among councils and stakeholders on this important issue. In 2019, we will kick off with a joint event together with our Belgium colleagues.

In the context of their work on financing the transition towards a
carbon-neutral economy, the Federal Belgium Council for Sustainable
Development organizes, together with the European Environment and
Sustainable Development Advisory Councils network (EEAC), a
seminar on: A) the implementation of the EU Action Plan:
Financing Sustainable Growth; B) The proposal for a regulation on
disclosures relating to sustainable investments and sustainability risks
(COM (2018) 354 final) and C) the revision of the guidelines on
non-financial information.

The programme will include an in-depth discussion about the related key
issues for actors involved in financing the transition in Belgium and in
other European countries: institutional investors, asset managers,
savers, NGOs andfinancial regulators. Speakers will include: Marie Baumgarts (Skandinaviska Enskilda BankenAB, Stockolm); Dominique Blanc (Novethic, Paris); Sven Genter (EuropeanCommission); Jean-Marc
Gollier (Eubelius, Bruxelles) and Yvonne Zwick (Rat f├╝rNachhaltige
Entwicklung, Berlin).

Academic presentations and an interactive debate with professionals from the financial industry are foreseen as well. The seminar will be conducted in English.Participation is free, but you are kindly invited to register here.
