欧盟委员会成立可持续金融发展专家小组

European Commission Appoints Members of Expert Group on Sustainable Finance

近日,欧盟委员会宣布正式成立可持续金融发展专家小组。该小组将负责通过研究可持续金融发展战略以及制定相关实施草案,促进欧洲金融业实现可持续发展。据悉,专家小组从属于欧盟资本市场联盟(Capital Markets Union,简称CMU),并将接受其统一领导。

欧盟委员会副主席Valdis Dombrovskis表示,可持续发展是欧洲金融行业在未来发展的必由之路,而专家组的成立将为我们源源不断的输送创新研究成果,确保欧盟在世界金融领域长期处于领先地位。

此外,欧盟主管就业、发展、投资以及竞争力的副主席Jyrki Katainen也表示,实施可持续金融发展战略将极大的促进就业,从而带动全欧洲的发展和竞争力的提升。Katainen还称,金融行业必须肩负起金融技术创新的重任,而在新技术应用同时,如何对资本在其中所扮演的角色进行定位将是欧洲金融发展在未来面临的巨大挑战。

此次欧盟金融政策调整旨在:

  • 引导公共资本和私人资本进行可持续发展投资
  • 探索金融机构和监管单位的运营模式以降低外部风险,提高金融系统稳定性
  • 在欧盟范围内充分落实可持续金融发展战略

尽管外界一致表达了对CMU和可持续金融发展专家小组未来发展前景的看好,然而,此次金融政策调整却并未涉及到近年来飞速发展的互联网金融领域,这似乎为欧洲金融的未来蒙上一层阴影。近年来,互联网金融的发展极大的带动了金融科技的创新,为实现金融的可持续发展提供了技术支持。因此,欧盟一直尝试在互联网金融方向有所突破,然而,取得的效果并不理想。之前,欧盟委员会曾在众筹行业的法规制定上遭遇了巨大挫折,最终不得不通过强制加大筹资额度以及提高筹资方准入门槛等一系列的举措才保障了欧洲众筹业的平稳发展。

有关专家表示,组建可持续金融发展专家团队对欧洲金融行业的发展固然是件好事,但是制定出的方案能否真正落实,又是否符合欧盟国家的国情?我们还需要拭目以待。

The European Commission has announced the appointment of a group of individuals to advise on sustainable finance. The initiative is part of the ongoing Capital Markets Union (CMU) which took a serious blow following the Brexit decision. The intent of the expert group is to help provide recommendations to the Commission to better determine how to integrate sustainability into rules for the financial sector.

EC Vice President Valdis Dombrovskis, who replaced Jonathan Hill at the Commission following Brexit, said they were “committed” to sustainable finance in Europe and this newly appointed group “will ensure our approach to sustainable finance is ambitious and at the forefront of innovation.”

Jyrki Katainen, Vice-President for Jobs, Growth, Investment and Competitiveness, added, “this is crucial for jobs, growth and competitiveness.” Katainen called the finance sector critical in re-orienting capital towards more sustainable technologies.

The EU financial policy reform seeks to:

  • Steer the flow of public and private capital towards sustainable investments;
  • Explore effective and operational steps that financial institutions and supervisors should take to protect the stability of the financial system from risks related to the environment;
  • Deploy these policies on a pan-European scale.

While the CMU initiative and expert group holds profound merit what appears to be missing is solid representation from Fintech proponents. Sustainable finance may be best achieved by leveraging technological innovation that can facilitate access and level the playing field for both consumers and businesses. The EU has already conceded defeat in attempting pan-European crowdfunding rules as beyond the reach of Commission policy makers. This shortfall was balanced by the decision to increase the amount issuers may raise on crowdfunding platforms – a change Dombrovskis called a “milestone” for CMU. The EU prospectus will be mandatory from € 8 million in capital raised significantly more than the previous € 5 million threshold.

As for the creation of another expert group of old finance luminaries, this is nice – but actionable policy will always be preferable.
