The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has published its Sustainable Finance Roadmap 2022-2024.

The Roadmap sets out ESMA’s deliverables on sustainable finance and how they will be implemented over the next three years. ESMA identifies three priorities for its sustainable finance work in the period from 2022 to 2024:

  • Tackling greenwashing and promoting transparency;
  • Building National Competent Authorities (NCAs’) and ESMA’s capacities in the sustainable finance field; and
  • Monitoring, assessing and analysing ESG markets and risks

ESMA will address its three priorities with a comprehensive list of actions across the following sectors: investment management, investment services, issuers’ disclosure and governance, benchmarks, credit and ESG ratings, trading and post-trading and financial innovation.

As part of their planned activities and deliverables, ESMA highlight that they plan to contribute to the development of EU sustainability reporting standards (including adjustments for SMEs) and to the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) work relating to international sustainability reporting standards.
