The law on sustainable finance and investment - is it fit for purpose?

There continues to be a major and persistent financing gap holding back achievement of international sustainability targets such as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and national targets such as the UK’s target of net zero by 2050 and a reduction in national emissions by 78% by 2035.  In relation to the SDGs the gap is estimated by the UN at some $2.5 trillion annually.

Many countries around the world are starting to address this using law and regulation with the EU bloc seemingly leading the way with its Sustainable Finance Package. The UK too has ambitious proposals.

Join Hogan Lovells and Sparknews for the final webinar in our three-part series as we consider the current state of law and regulation in Europe and the UK as it affects the buyers and sellers of financial services – the borrowers and the lenders - and how it is evolving to address this gap.  Is evolution enough? Is more rapid and radical action by law makers and regulators needed now?
