EUROSIF applauds European legislator for taking stronger stand in favour of fairer taxation

Share

The European Sustainable Investment Forum strongly backs the European Commission in its effort to put in place a fairer and more efficient system for taxation.

Brussels, 28 January 2016 – The European Commission has issued today a legislative package aiming to combat aggressive tax practices by large companies efficiently and effectively. The Anti-Tax Avoidance Package is built around three pillars:

  • Ensuring effective taxation in the EU
  • Increasing tax transparency
  • Securing a level playing field

The package reflects the OECD global standards approved last autumn and its two legislative proposals will now go forward to the Parliament and Council while the Commission urges Member States to agree on the new External Strategy once the Parliament formally endorses it.

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
