EFAMA European Fund and Asset Management Association today provides a statement on the EU Green Deal….
Tanguy van de Werve, Director General of EFAMA – commenting on the provisional political agreement reached yesterday said: “We congratulate Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission, and her team, for developing such an ambitious, and welcome action plan.
The European Green Deal, with the active support from the Member States and the European Parliament, has the potential to be a real game-changer for our society, and which could go a long way to making Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050.
As the voice of the Asset Management industry in Europe, we wholeheartedly support the European Commission in this initiative. We are committed to playing our role as an industry in channelling the necessary funds for projects which are essential to its success.
We would also stress that robust, comparable, reliable and publicly available ESG data on investee companies are a prerequisite for this to happen”
