Date: 2 June 2022
Venue: Luxembourg


The ICMA Luxembourg regional committee invited members and all interested market participants to attend this in-person event in Luxembourg. This year's regional general meeting covered ICMA's activities in the region with a presentation and panel discussion on the EU Taxonomy regulation.

Designed as a classification system to identify sustainable economic activities, the EU Taxonomy Regulation also serves as a metric for sustainable reporting and as a benchmark for sustainable financial products and has created a precedent that many other jurisdictions have followed. The discussion featured a presentation by Eila Kreivi, EIB’s Chief Sustainable Finance officer on EIB’s work on the EU Taxonomy, followed by a panel discussion involving market participants.
