Towards a green finance framework

Samenvatting: 

Under the title ‘Towards a Green Finance Framework,’ the European Banking Federation published a report that assesses the role of the banking sector in the context of the discussion on green finance.

European banks have a major role in the financing of the economy. Even as market-based financing gains a bigger share of the financing needs of companies in Europe, banks will continue to play an important role not only in terms of traditional lending but also in a range of intermediary functions and in their role as investors. With this major role comes responsibility.
