The European Green Deal aims to make the EU the global champion in low-carbon industries. Business expectations are high, yet public and private investments of several hundred billion Euros are required annually to finance the transformation.

This objective requires combining EU instruments with funding from private investors and banks. The issuance of green bonds, the EU Taxonomy scheme, and the climate element in the EU’s financial framework are a promising kickstart. Nonetheless, the thirst for green investments needs to be matched by real business activities. And to have a lasting impact, Europe must promote its sustainable finance policy as a global standard. Against this background, we will address the following questions:

1.    How to mobilise the trillions: Which regulatory architecture is needed to balance different market interests?
2.    What is sustainable: How to make sure the real economy’s needs are incorporated in the EU Taxonomy?
3.    Market acceptance is key: Can sustainable finance become a profitable business line? And how to shape a globally accepted EU ‘gold standard’ for sustainable finance?
