IIGCC letter to EU leaders from investors on a sustainable recovery from COVID-19
Leading investors have written to EU leaders, highlighting the need to ensure the economic response to the Covid-19 pandemic delivers a green and sustainable recovery.
The letter comes from 183 investors, representing over €12 trillion in assets under management or advice, and follows publication of the first element of the EU’s proposed post-Covid recovery strategy. This positions the ‘European Green Deal as the EU’s recovery strategy’ and is a cornerstone of the EU recovery plan. The intervention from investors is intended to also inform economic planning at a national level across EU member states.
IIGCC led the development and delivery of the letter as part of our European policy work with investor partners Principles for Responsible Investment and CDP. See the accompanying press release here.
