Private finance, primarily banks, has a great deal of influence on the strategic choices of the real economy companies it finances and which operate in the fields of energy, mobility or agri-food for example. It is therefore necessary to mobilize such finance in addition to the traditional policy mix. Financial regulation has an even more important role to play here, since the limitations of voluntary commitments are becoming clear.
I4CE works closely with financial regulators and assesses financial regulatory proposals and their ability to contribute to the transition of the real economy. The Institute is involved in the European regulatory agenda and, having contributed to the reform of reporting requirements, continues to explore new regulatory proposals such as bank transition plans.
