Eurosif Supports Landmark European Commission
Proposal Promoting ESG Investment Disclosure
 
30 July, Brussels  -  Eurosif, the European Forum  for Sustainable  Investment
http://www.eurosif.org,  strongly supports  the Proposal
1
of the European Commission,
for a Regulation  making it mandatory for retail investors to be informed about how
environmental, social and governance (ESG) concerns are taken into account in their
investment, whether in a mutual fund or other investment-linked products.  Eurosif
believes that this Proposal  represents a major milestone in terms of developing
sustainability through European financial markets.
 
The Proposal of 3 July, 2012, is on the Key Information Document (KID) for investment
products.  It is linked to a wider EU initiative to create a sustainable  and satisfactory
regulatory environment for the sale and disclosures of retail investment products
(Packaged Retail Investment Products or PRIPs).
 
It is  also  consistent with  the recent European Commission  Communication on
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
2
and linked to other financial reforms aimed at
helping to rebuild confidence in European financial markets amongst retail investors.
 
François Passant, Executive Director of Eurosif comments, “Encouragingly, the
Proposal  requires  that  all  packaged retail investment products, including those not
portraying themselves explicitly as “ESG or SRI
3
products”, disclose  whether the
investment product manufacturer targets specific ESG outcomes”.
 
Eurosif is supported in this position by its national members: Forum Finanza Sostenibile
(FFS) of Italy;  Forum  pour  l’Investissement Responsable (French SIF)  of France;
Forum Nachhaltige Geldanlagen (FNG)  of Austria,  Germany and Switzerland;
SpainSIF;  the Vereniging van Beleggers voor Duurzame Ontwikkeling (VBDO)  of
Holland and the UK Sustainable Investment and Finance Association (UKSIF).
