EU Sustainable Finance Action Plan Resource Center

Sustainalytics research on what the EU Action Plan means for investors

The EU Sustainable Finance Action Plan is the EU’s strategy for sustainable finance and is part of the implementation plan of Article 2(1)(c) of the Paris Agreement and the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It aims to:

capital flow

Reorient capital flows towards sustainable investments in order to achieve sustainable and inclusive growth


Manage financial risks stemming from climate change, resource depletion, environmental degradation and social issues


Foster transparency and long-termism in financial and economic activity

Sustainalytics’ research aligns with the following three components of the EU Action Plan:


EU Taxonomy


EU Benchmarks

investor duties and disclosures

EU Investors’ Duties and Disclosures (Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation)

To aid investors’ thinking on the upcoming EU Action Plan regulations, Sustainalytics’ dedicated Resource Center brings together our research-based insights on these three components. This page will be regularly updated with new insights. We hope you find it useful.
