Regulation on disclosures relating to sustainable investments and sustainability risks
The BdB, BVR and DSGV associations support the start made by the European Commission on promoting sustainable investment products. Sustainable investments are of growing importance on the German market, which is why the German banks and savings banks are addressing the issue in depth. The legislative initiative of the European Commission offers the opportunity to eliminate some of the barriers for issuers and distributors and in this way to broaden the dissemination of sustainable products. For this reason, we appreciate the opportunity to comment on this draft.
