BETTER FINANCE feedback on the European Commission’s proposal for a regulation on low carbon benchmarks and positive carbon impact benchmarks


BETTER FINANCE welcomes the opportunity to comment on the Commission's proposal on low carbon benchmarks and positive carbon impact benchmarks released as part of the Sustainable Finance Action Plan of the European Commission. EU citizens as savers and individual investors are the main provider of long term funding to the EU economy and are mostly by nature long term oriented, as their needs are often long-term ones: pension, home purchase, children education, etc. Therefore, they are concerned with the impact of the investment of their savings on sustainability.
