There are so many ESG-related publications and developments that it is hard to keep abreast of them all. For this reason, every two weeks, our firm has been publishing a tracker of ESG-related publications and developments, with a primary focus on developments that may be of most interest to or impact our clients, be they corporates, asset managers or asset owners.

Key updates covered in this edition include:

  • The European Commission’s renewed sustainable finance strategy and proposed regulation for a European Green Bond Standard.
  • The Spanish Cabinet declared the development of an ecosystem to manufacture Electric and Connected Vehicles as a Strategic Project for the Recovery and Economic Transformation.
  • The Spanish Instituto de Crédito Oficial (ICO) announced it plans to focus on financing sustainable and digital projects.

If you have any ESG-related questions, please get in touch with your usual Herbert Smith Freehills contact who will be able to direct you as appropriate.
