Eurosif position on the Capital Markets Union Action Plan

Share

The European Commission has recently released its Capital Markets Union (CMU) Action Plan defining the building blocks of an effective and integrated CMU to be put in place by 2019. The CMU aims to enable European companies to access capital markets in a more integrated and effective manner in order to drive economic growth, create jobs and meet investment needs in the EU. As many other policy stakeholders (e.g. E3G, Aviva), Eurosif believes that the CMU Initiative is a great opportunity for building the foundations of a Sustainable Capital Markets Union. As such, we welcome the introduction in the CMU Action Plan of Chapter 3 dedicated to “Investing for the Long Term, Infrastructure and Sustainable Investment”. In this paper we react to the CMU Action Plan, drawing on our CMU Manifesto and focusing on four key pillars:

  1. Greater transparency via mandatory ESG disclosure
  2. A clear definition of fiduciary duty as including ESG issues
  3. Further legislative coherence in promoting sustainable long-term investment
  4. Enhanced long-term infrastructure investment
