Applied Sustainable Finance

A lot of new regulations have recently been agreed by European governments with a direct impact for portfolio managers, traders and bankers inside and outside the EU. The first such regulation comes into force early next year.

Simultaneously, new organisations, such as the European Sustainability Platform, come into being and other regulatory bodies are being given extra mandates to tackle climate change. The main such regulations are EU Taxonomy, EU Green Bond Standard, EU Climate Benchmarks and regulatory ESG disclosures.

The new regulations concern all of us and the Taxonomy has a wide scope and should be considered as having a global impact. This course will cover the different regulations, their deployment timelines and practical consequences.

  • Financial and non-financial institutions have new ESG disclosures to fulfill. March 2021 will be the date where prospectuses will have to be updated and contain ESG disclosures.
