Sustainable finance and benchmarks: Low-carbon benchmarks and positive-carbon-impact benchmarks

20-01-2020

In May 2018, the European Commission presented a package of measures on the financing of sustainable growth. The package includes three proposals aimed at establishing an EU taxonomy on sustainable economic activities, improving disclosure requirements and creating a new category of financial benchmarks to help investors measure the carbon footprint of their investments.

In May 2018, the European Commission presented a package of measures on the financing of sustainable growth. The package includes three proposals aimed at establishing an EU taxonomy on sustainable economic activities, improving disclosure requirements and creating a new category of financial benchmarks to help investors measure the carbon footprint of their investments. Financial benchmarks have an important impact on investment flows. Many investors rely on them for creating investment products, measuring their performance and devising asset allocation strategies. The Commission proposes to create a new category of benchmarks comprising low-carbon and positive-carbon-impact benchmarks, by amending the Benchmark Regulation. As the regulation is directly applicable, amending it would restrict the possibility of divergent measures being taken by the competent authorities at national level. Parliament voted in plenary on 26 March 2019 to approve the compromise text agreed in trilogue negotiations. Following approval of a corrigendum by Parliament in October, the Council adopted the text on 8 November 2019. The final act was signed on 27 November 2019, published in the Official Journal on 9 December and entered into force the following day. Second edition. The 'EU Legislation in Progress' briefings are updated at key stages throughout the legislative procedure.

Smart Single Market regulation in the area of professional services

15-09-2017

• In the Communication on reform recommendations [COM(2017)8290 final], the European Commission has shown how the regulation of professional services is a significant policy issue for the Single Market. It also underlines the relevance of policy action in this area in the wider context of European labour markets and EU strategies and policies. • The policy objectives for the reform recommendations need to be articulated more clearly.

• In the Communication on reform recommendations [COM(2017)8290 final], the European Commission has shown how the regulation of professional services is a significant policy issue for the Single Market. It also underlines the relevance of policy action in this area in the wider context of European labour markets and EU strategies and policies. • The policy objectives for the reform recommendations need to be articulated more clearly. This includes being clear that Member States need to balance the costs and benefits of regulatory reform. The reform process is not just about reducing the cost of regulation, it also recognises the benefits of regulation and seeks to encourage better regulation. • Experiences during the mutual evaluation suggest strongly that Member States need guidance from the Commission on how to undertake the process of balancing costs and benefits as they implement the reform recommendations. The European Commission needs to review why Member States faced problems with this process and apply lessons learnt in order to assist Member States with the implementation of the reform recommendations. • When legislating the European Parliament should ensure that the European Commission has the following tasks: publication of detailed monitoring and evaluation plans; annual repetition of the EU Survey of Regulated Occupations; and the creation of a central repository for sharing evidence and data. • When legislating, the European Parliament should ensure that Member States are recommended to follow the guidelines on regulation of professional services issued by the European Commission and to cooperate with each other and with the European Commission in the development and sharing of evidence.

Benchmarks in financial instruments

25-04-2016

A benchmark is an index (statistical measure), calculated from a representative set of underlying data, which is used as a reference for financial instruments or contracts. Well-known benchmarks include the London Interbank Offered Rate (Libor) and the Euro Interbank Offered Rate (Euribor). The manipulation of those two benchmarks has sparked concerns about the integrity of benchmarks worldwide. The European Parliament is due to vote on the Commission's proposal for a regulation on indices used as ...

In dieser Studie soll vor allem untersucht werden, inwieweit die Schaffung eines grenzüberscheitenden Systems für die Erhebung und Überwachung von Daten zur Forschungsleistung (bezüglich Aufwand, Leistung und Produktivität) wünschenswert und möglich ist, durch die die Politikgestaltung verbessert und zur Ermittlung der entsprechenden forschungspolitischen Optionen beigetragen werden soll. Dazu gehen wir auf die zentralen politischen Zielsetzungen ein, d. h. auf die wesentlichen Gründe dafür, dass der Druck, die Forschung in Europa zu überwachen und ihre Leistung zu messen, zunimmt, worin sich letztlich der Wunsches nach einem umfassenderen gemeinsamen Verständnis nicht nur der Leistung, sondern auch der Wirkung und Auswirkungen von Forschung ausdrückt. Wir widmen uns zudem den derzeitigen Konzepten zur Erfassung strategischer Informationen und zur Bewertung der Forschungsleistung in Europa und auf einzelstaatlicher Ebene sowie den damit verbundenen Vorteilen und Problemen.
