Final HLEG Report

Well that was the HLEG.  The final report (see news and media page) was handed over on 2 February to V-P Dombrovskis – the moment captured below.  We await the resulting DG FSMA Action Plan before the public conference on March 22nd in Brussels.

FSB TCFD, G20 study group and EU HLEG on sustainable finance …

June/July was a busy period on the sustainable finance front.  The FSB released the final report from its Task Force on Climate Related Disclosures, the G20 released its latest study group material on Green Finance and the EU High-Level Expert Group on Sustainable Finance (HLEG) produced it’s interim report plus held a stakeholders day in Brussels at which I spoke. And we did a London event to promote it.   I also produced one op-ed published in the Daily Telegraph and 2 others on websites focussing on G20 material.  There are links to all the material on the Media page of this website.

Important speech by APRA on climate related risks

APRA Executive Board member Geoff Summerhayes has recently made a ground-breaking speech about the financial risks from climate change, which embodies all the issues we have been raising via Climate Alliance Australia.  This has the potential to completely change the debate there, at least in the financial sector.  The speech can be found here.

Introduction to the site

Hello, this website is not intended for blogging. I dont really ‘do’ comments on events in real time. I prefer to think about what is going on and offer considered reflections via my speeches/presentations/articles.  But if you would like to ask me any questions or comment on anything I have written, please do.
