EFR letter to the Chairman of the High-Level Expert Group on Sustainable Finance

The European Financial Services Round Table (EFR), whose membership comprises Chairmen and Chief Executive Officers from international banks and insurers with headquarters in Europe, is very supportive of the European Union (EU) in taking action on Sustainable Finance in order to meet the commitments made at COP21. Sustainable finance has been one of the main focus areas for the EFR and its Members in 2015 and 2016.

The EFR welcomes the High-Level Expert Group (HLEG) on Sustainable Finance set up by the European Commission and the progress made in 2016 by the EU to put our economy onto a more sustainable path, including its role in delivering the Paris Agreement and the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

As the EFR is committed to helping the EU deliver on these commitments, in particular in tackling climate change and in supporting a strong climate action agenda, the EFR has sent a letter enclosed to propose a meeting between an EFR delegation and a delegation of the High-Level Expert Group on Sustainable Finance.
