Greening investments is a top priority for the EU, which requires financial advisers to consider the environmental objectives of their clients and beneficiaries. However, energy efficiency and sustainable energy investments face a financing gap. This EU-funded project, LEVEL EEI, aims to make these products more competitive. It is a joint project organized by 2DII, Better Finance, Maastricht University, and WWF.
The project’s first conference will be held on 1-2 December 2021. Depending on the evolution of the COVID-19 situation, it will either be a fully online or hybrid event in Brussels.
The event will feature three sets of workshops on the following topics:
- Financial consumer protection
- Impact and the financial ecosystem
- Behavioral economics
