Post COP26, the financial sector has a key role to play in supporting the urgent transition to a sustainable economy. Governments and regulators around the world are stepping up efforts to integrate climate and sustainability into regulation, impacting an ever larger part of financial transactions, products, firms, and entire value chains. 2022 is, in many ways, the year that sustainable finance is expected to become truly mainstream. Europe has been a global champion in the sustainable finance agenda, and the implementation of key EU legislation like the EU Taxonomy and Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation has now begun. Market participants are grappling with the practical challenges behind this effort in Europe and beyond, as regulators around the world are considering their own approaches to appropriate disclosure, oversight, and enforcement. Join us for a discussion on: • The importance and influence of global initiatives such as the Task Force on Climate-related Finance Disclosures (TCFD) on the policy agenda • The EU sustainable finance agenda under the spotlight: achievements thus far and expectations for 2022 and beyond • Practical considerations for the industry as ESG regulation becomes a reality. What are the challenges and opportunities?
