(Thursday 26th October) Today, a group of over 20 NGOs coordinated by ShareAction through the European Responsible Investment Network (ERIN), has published a manifesto for the EU elections calling on policymakers to make sustainable finance a top priority of the 2024-2029 EU agenda.

The NGOs, which work on finance, human rights and the environment, represent supporters across multiple member states, warn that a failure to legislate sufficiently ambitious policy risks creating dangerous economic instability.

The new Commission appointed for 2024 until 2029 will have the last opportunity to take action and bring forward legislation to accelerate the transition to a zero-carbon economy and meet crucial 2030 targets set out in the Paris Climate Agreement and Sustainable Development Goals.
