EU Policy Conference: Can long-term investing unlock the potential of the CMU? Towards a Sustainable Capital Markets Union


Eurosif, the European Forum for responsible Investing and the Italian Sustainable Investment Forum – Forum per la Finanza Sostenibile – with the kind collaboration of MEP Flavio Zanonato (S&D, IT) organised on the 1st of June 2016 a conference on Long-Term investment as part of the Capital Markets Union. In view of the European Commission’s recent release of its Capital Markets Union (CMU) Action Plan defining the building blocks of an effective and integrated CMU to be put in place by 2019, Eurosif wanted to stress the important drivers that need to be part of the policy equation in order to guarantee on one side that the CMU is able to deliver economic growth and job creation as it commits to, while not denying the main pillars of sustainability.
