E.U. High level Expert Group on Sustainable Finance

As announced in its communication on Capital Markets Union – Accelerating reform, the European Commission established a High-Level Expert Group on Sustainable Finance (HLEG) in December 2016. The HLEG comprised 20 senior experts from civil society, the finance sector, academia and observers from European and international institutions. The group was mandated to provide advice to the Commission on how to:

  • steer the flow of public and private capital towards sustainable investments
  • identify the steps that financial institutions and supervisors should take to protect the stability of the financial system from risks related to the environment
  • deploy these policies on a pan-European scale
