UNEP FI believes that the transition to a sustainable, inclusive and green economy requires the alignment of financial sector activities with the long-term needs of sustainable development. Considering the importance of the topic for UNEP FI mandate and the high proportion of EU-based Signatories within its network, UNEP FI decided to contribute to the European Commission consultations on the Green Paper on Long-Term Financing of the European Economy, with the overall aim to support the Commission’s efforts to put the EU back on the path of sustainable and inclusive growth. The purpose of the Green Paper is to initiate a broad debate about how to foster the supply of long-term financing and how to improve and diversify the system of financial intermediation for long-term investment in Europe.
