PRI webinar: EU consultation on investor duties regarding sustainability
The PRI and UNEP FI will host a webinar on the European Commission’s public consultation on investor duties (fiduciary duties) and sustainability on Friday 8 December. The consultation builds on the EU High Level Expert Group on Sustainable Finance’s interim report, which recommends greater clarification by the EU in this area.
- David Rouch, Freshfields
- Claudia Kruse, Managing Director Global Responsible Investment & Governance, APG.
The webinar will be moderated by HLEG observer Nathan Fabian, Director of Policy and Research at the PRI, and include an opportunity to ask questions at the end.
The consultation runs until 22 January 2018 and will feed into an impact assessment. The Commission’s press release can be found here and full details of the consultation here. The PRI and UNEP FI have been calling for EU clarification of investor duties since the launch of Fiduciary Duty in the 21st Century in 2015.
