The EU has initiated an ambitious agenda on sustainable finance which aims to redirect capital flows towards climate transition and sustainability, and is an essential piece of the European Green Deal and the Covid-19 Recovery Plan. In this context, companies and investors alike need reliable and meaningful information on sustainability risks and impacts in order to leverage investment opportunities and manage the pitfalls and opportunities in a fast-changing world.
This event will see the presentation of the latest research on the disclosures made by 303 companies on climate and environmental matters. The presentation will include a specific overview of the results of companies in Southern Europe.
The study is published as the EU Commission is finalising its reform proposal for the EU Non-Financial Reporting Directive, and lays down plans to create a European sustainability reporting standard setter. What changes will this reform bring? The event will tackle the opportunities and biggest challenges for businesses in Spain, Italy and Greece.
