ESG disclosure landscape for banks and capital markets in Europe

In April 2021, the Association for Financial Markets in Europe (AFME) launched a report highlighting the need for financial institutions to have access to consistent non-financial reporting from corporates to be able to support the transition to a low carbon economy

The European ESG Disclosure Landscape for Banks and Capital Markets report, written in partnership with Latham & Watkins, maps the complex ESG reporting landscape for financial institutions. It calls on policymakers and regulators to build a coherent framework to support sustainable finance by:

  • prioritising the availability of high-quality data from non-financial corporates
  • providing clarity, avoiding inconsistencies and duplication between reporting requirements for financial institutions
  • taking into account the global nature of financial institutions.

The timeline chart below (with thanks to Latham & Watkins and AFME) published in the latest (June 2021) Review of Financial Markets is a vade mecum – a rich ready-reference source – for anyone involved in this area. We will be organising a series of events for members across all sections of our bailiwick – capital markets and corporate finance, compliance and risk, financial planning, Islamic finance, operations, and wealth management – over the summer months to address key issues.
