Mobilising finance for more sustainable investments is essential to translate the European Union's climate change, environmental and sustainable policy goals into tangible results. The current financial framework needs to be reformed to better align capital flows with a pathway to sustainable development and growth.

Interim Report of the High-Level Expert Group on Sustainable Finance
At the end of 2016, the European Commission established a High-Level Expert Group on Sustainable Finance to help develop a comprehensive, overarching EU strategy on sustainable finance. After six months of intensive work, the Expert Group has summarized first results and policy options in its Interim Report which will be published on 10 July 2017.
The Public Hearing will allow stakeholders to provide feedback to the European Commission and the High-Level Expert Group on barriers to and possible solutions for increasing sustainable finance, and ways to establish a more sustainable financial system.

Registration is open until 4th July.
