"REGULATORY DEVELOPMENTS IN THE ESG/SUSTAINABILITY SPACE AND THEIR IMPACT ON LISTED FIRMS"

ESG regulatory space and EU sustainable finance strategy

Together with all national competent authorities, HCMC participates in the preparation of the  new regulatory framework  for ESG matters at EU and ESMA level (e.g., Disclosure Regulation, Taxonomy Regulation, Benchmarks and non financial disclosures framework  revision) and is endorsing the Strategy proposed by ESMA on this very  important topic.  Reference will be made to these  recent developments as well as to the envisaged new  EU sustainable finance  strategy.

At the same time, the recent  ESG regulatory space is coupled by several challenges to which we will refer briefly. Last, we will present  the major EU Market trends /ESG and we will make reference to the  various  initiatives  at national level  either form an institutional point of view, or from a public  or private perspective with a focus on listed firms/product.
