European Sustainable Investment Policy •The EU High-Level Expert Group on Sustainable Finance (HLEG) •The European Commission’s policy objectives Responsible Investor is proud to present a series of three webinars focused on European sustainable investment policy in the context of the High-Level Expert Group on Sustainable Finance (HLEG) and the stated objectives of EU Vice-President Valdis Dombrovskis. This is a crucial time for EU policy on ESG. But how will it affect you… and your clients?

The series will feature senior figures from the EU, leading market participants and expert analysts. European Sustainable Investment Policy: Series 3/3 SUSTAINABILITY DEFINITIONS There is also a plan to create a common language and classification system for sustainable investments.
