The goals of the German Climate Protection Plan 2050 are "efficient financial markets for climate-conscious investment decisions". To this end, disclosure regimes and a label for green financial products should be introduced. The research project "Sustainable Capital Investments through Financial Market Regulation - Reform Concepts in a Franco-German Comparison of Laws" carried out on behalf of the Federal Environment Agency deals with both instruments. The report analyses the German and French legal regimes and sheds light on the legislative projects at the European level. On the basis of these findings, reform proposals for German law are developed.
This edited collection explores transparency as a key regulatory strategy in European business law. It examines the rationales, limitations and further perspectives on transparency that have emerged in various areas of European law including corporate law, capital markets law and accounting law, as well as other areas of law relevant for European (listed) stock corporations.
This book presents a clear and accurate picture of the recent reforms in the European transparency regime. In doing so it endorses a multi-dimensional notion of transparency, highlighting the need for careful consideration and contextualisation of the transparency phenomenon. In addition, the book considers relevant enforcement mechanisms and discusses the implications of disparate enforcement concepts in European law from both the private and public law perspectives.
Written by a team of distinguished contributors, the collection offers a comprehensive analysis of the European transparency regime by discussing the fundamentals of transparency, the role of disclosure in European business law, and related enforcement questions.
