The most serious phase of the COVID-19 pandemic seems to be over. At the same time, scientific evidence highlights the urgent need to scale up ambition to address the global most pressing priority: climate change and environmental degradation. In that respect, by maintaining and increasing the momentum from past and ongoing policy actions, Europe shows its determination to deliver on its commitment to become the first climate-neutral continent by 2050.
The adoption of many fundamental regulations during the past years by the European Commission could be “the end of the beginning”. Moving forward, various issues need to be addressed; sustainability disclosures need to be enhanced, biodiversity loss needs to be reversed and related risks need to be better understood, among others. These can be achieved by the collaborative engagement of all stakeholders, including financial market participants, and based on sound scientific evidence.
For this reason, the JRC Summer School on Sustainable Finance brings together the community of academics, policymakers and professionals who work on these topics. By doing so, it exposes researchers to the most demanding issues faced by the industry and helps them produce policy-relevant research. At the same time, it provides independent scientific advice to policy, reaffirming the crucial role of research in informing policy-making.
