A number of ESG developments occurred over 2021, both at a European level (in particular finalisation of the Article 8 Taxonomy delegated acts and related Commission FAQs in Dec 2021) and UK level (TCFD roll-out, PRA climate change adaptation report) that will directly or indirectly impact many banks and insurers. The ESG related MiFID II rules are also due to come into effect in the summer and will have significant implications for many investment banks.
This session took place yesterday (19th January), where our panel of experts ran through these developments and advised on which areas to focus on in 2022 as part of your bank/insurer’s ESG implementation project.
You can find a recording of the webinar and the presentation slides on the Linklaters Knowledge Portal.
