Sustainable finance and environmental, social and governance (ESG) reporting are becoming increasingly important topics for treasurers. The regulatory developments at European Union (EU) level relating to sustainable finance will result in a reorientation of capital market funding. They will also impact bank lending to the economy.
This briefing sheds light on why and how sustainable finance should matter to all treasurers and explain the latest regulatory developments and initiatives at EU level.
