Berlin, Germany,

Only few weeks ago, the EU adopted its “Action Plan: Financing Sustainable Growth”, including measures on “Sustainable Finance”. What is the impact of the Action Plan on financial markets and business in Europe? What is “Sustainable Finance”, which projects should be endorsed and how?
