The European Commission has announced it will set up a high level expert group on sustainable finance, as part of its Capital Markets Union strategy.
The Commission is calling for 20 experts from civil society, the business community and other non-public sector institutions to join the group.
Vice-President Valdis Dombrovskis, responsible for Financial Stability, Financial Services and Capital Markets Union, said: "We're looking at ways to encourage institutional investors to have more sustainable investment policies. We want to see what more can be done to support the transition to a low-carbon economy in the financial sector."
Interested individuals can submit their application by 25 November 2016. The selection of the group’s members will be carried out next month and the group will start its work in January 2017.
