The Sustainable Finance Pathway 
The European Commission's Action Plan on Financing Sustainable Growth, sets out a comprehensive strategy to further connect finance with sustainability, to help the economy and various industries deliver ambitious decarbonisation and climate targets set out by the EU more broadly.


The EU Green Bond Standard 
Complementing the recently released EU Taxonomy is the Usability Guide for the EU Green Bond Standard. The proposed EU Green Bond Standard (GBS) intends to ensure that investments contribute to environmental objectives by following the EU Taxonomy criteria.
