Channelling financial resources into investments that comply with environmental, social and governance criteria

Between June 2021 and March 2022 the European Economic and Social Committee is organising a series of events on the updated new industrial strategy, announced by the European Commission on 5 May 2021. The main objective of these events is to hear the view of civil society organisations on the future of European industry. Each event will focus on a specific aspect of the strategy, from the role of critical raw materials to industry's role to achieve the Green Deal, from Europe's competitiveness on the global stage to a truly Just Transition and public & private investments.

Sustainable finance aims at supporting the delivery on the objectives of the European Green Deal by channelling private investment into companies and projects that support the transition to a climate-neutral, climate-resilient, resource-efficient and just economy. The challenges this brings about should be addressed in a joint effort by the financial sector, businesses, regulatory authorities and citizens. The Industry sector will face major challenges, and be affected by recent and upcoming measures adopted at EU level.

On 18 October 2021, starting at 10:00, during the webinar "Channelling financial resources into investments that comply with environmental, social and governance criteria", panellists and external stakeholders participating via videoconferencing will discuss how do best develop the sustainable finance framework in order to achieve the objectives of the European Green Deal, whilst at the same time ensuring that European industry can lead the way as we enter this new age.

The event will be held with the videoconferencing platform Interactio, allowing registered participants to speak and listen in EN, FR and DE. Please register to receive a connection link for joining the online debate.
