Kommuninvest has participated in a meeting in Brussels with the EU member countries expert group on sustainable finance. The meeting was part of the work on the EU Commission’s Action Plan on Financing Sustainable Growth. Kommuninvest was one of five financial institutions that had been invited to share their experiences in sustainable financing.
The Commission’s plan, adopted in March 2018, has three main objectives:
- To reorient capital flows towards sustainable investment, in order to achieve sustainable and inclusive growth;
- To manage financial risks stemming from climate change, environmental degradation and social issues; and
- Foster transparency and long-termism in financial and economic activity.
