The EU has set a target of 2050 to achieve carbon neutrality. The problem markets are facing at the moment is the lack of regulation in the ESG space leading to fears of greenwashing. In this pathway, Stephanie and Simon will discuss the measures being taken to boost regulation in the green finance markets through the likes of the UK Sustainable Finance Taxonomy, and through different initiatives such as the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Paris Agreement.

In this video Simon gives us an overview of Financial Regulation and how this is developing to enhance disclosure of climate risks and support the mainstreaming of green and sustainable finance.
