    Applications Open for TEG Final Reports Dialogue

    Stockholm (NordSIP) – The European Commission (EC) will hold a stakeholder dialogue on sustainable finance in Brussels, on March 12. The dialogue takes place on the occasion of the publication of the final Taxonomy report and added user guidance for its recommendations for an EU Green Bond Standard by the EU’s Technical Expert Group (TEG) on Sustainable Finance.

    According to the EC, the “meeting will also provide an opportunity for stakeholders to discuss and express ideas on the upcoming renewed sustainable finance strategy, which was announced in the European Commission’s Communication on the European Green Deal.”

    The dialogue is one of the last steps in the path that the TEG set out on in June 2018. The role of the TEG has been to assist the Commission in the development of a unified classification system for sustainable economic activities (‘EU Taxonomy’), an EU Green Bond Standard, methodologies for climate benchmarks, and guidelines for climate-related disclosure by companies.

    Prospective attendees have until February 18 to apply for a spot at the event. Participants will be accepted on a rolling basis. All participants should be confirmed by February 21, 2020, at the latest. For those not selected, a live webstream will be available.

    The European Commission expects to publish a programme for the dialogue shortly.
