Objective of the consultation

In its interim report, published in July 2017, the High Level Expert Group on sustainable finance recommended the Commission to clarify that the fiduciary duties (duties of loyalty and prudence) of institutional investors and asset managers explicitly integrate material environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors and long term sustainability.

The aim of this public consultation is to collect the views and opinions of interested parties on this issue in order to inform the impact assessment process.
