Next year will be busy for SEI Forums, stimulating discussions and building capacity on energy efficiency finance in line with the Renovation Wave Strategy and linking to the Recovery and Resilience Facility and the EU Sustainable Finance Initiative. We will keep you updated.
Regarding the EU Sustainable Finance and the classification of sustainable investment proposed therein, last Friday the European Commission launched a stakeholder feedback period on the draft Commission Delegated Regulation supplementing Regulation (EU) 2020/852 – the “draft Taxonomy Delegated Act.”
In this way the European Commission invites stakeholders to comment on the draft delegated act that will define what economic activities could be considered substantially contributing to climate change mitigation or adaptation, while not significantly harming the other environmental objectives.
The stakeholder feedback period will close on Friday 18 December 2020. Given the relevance of this draft act to sustainable energy investment and finance for energy efficiency in particular, we encourage you to submit your feedback regarding the technical screening criteria proposed in the draft delegated act at your earliest opportunity via the above website, allowing the European Commission to take your views into account. Please feel free to share this information across your networks.
