On December 18, 2015, the European Commission launched a consultation which seeks to collect information on how institutional investors, asset managers and other service providers in the investment chain take into account, for the purpose of investment decisions, sustainability information and performance of companies or assets. The consultation is linked to the Commission’s Communication on Long-Term Financing of the European Economy as well as the action plan for building a Capital Markets Union. The consultation is open until March 25, 2016.

The consultation is available at: https://ec.europa.eu/eusurvey/runner/longtermandsustainableinvestment.
