Sustainable finance

For finance to become truly sustainable, we need to think differently about its development and about how it impacts on society and the economy.

Sustainable finance refers broadly to the process of taking into account environmental and social considerations in investment decisions. Many initiatives are ongoing at the EU and global level with the purpose of creating a legislative framework which is more favourable for the sustainable investments.  FW argues that both an ambitious legislative framework and economic regulations – which adequately price negative externalities – are needed if are to promote the urgently needed capital shift towards sustainable investments.

Please, note that sustainable finance is however a transversal topic, that very often can touch legislations of different nature.
