Anticipate regulations and understand the impacts

Anticipate regulations and understand the impacts

In March 2018, the European Commission unveiled its “Action Plan: Financing Sustainable Growth” setting out the EU vision on the role of finance in a more sustainable economy by implementing overarching regulatory changes to enable the transition to a low-carbon economy and a sustainable financial system.

Since then, asset managers, banks, pension funds and insurers are assessing how they will be impacted by these regulations and how they can seize the opportunity to develop new products, finance more “sustainable” assets and integrate climate risks in their traditional risk management procedures.

 

Address your challenges throughout the investment value chain

As regulations are about to come into force, KPMG can assist you to address challenges throughout the investment value chain.

 

  • Product manufacturing: design your products in line with the upcoming EU “sustainable assets” taxonomy
  • Product labelling: align your products with the criteria of the upcoming EU Green Bond Standard and Ecolabel for funds
  • Product distribution: identify the sustainability preferences of your clients and match them with relevant investment products
  • Product impact: assess the greenness of your investment or lending portfolio, demonstrate the impact of your portfolio, specifically in terms of carbon emissions and impact towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals
  • Product compliance: perform an oversight on compliance of ESG strategy with regard to the actual portfolio of the fund
  • Product reporting: produce fact sheets/reports on the carbon intensity of your investment products and/or alignment to the 2° scenario, or other types of indicators
