In a recently published Joint Declaration, European Parliament, Council, and Commission agreed to explore the possibility of introducing rules establishing reporting obligations for the member states, to ensure availability of information for evaluating the contribution to environmental objectives of the funds borrowed in the capital markets. To that end, EC will endeavor to make a legislative proposal during the first quarter of 2021. This is in context of the shared political ambition of the European Green Deal, which underlines the EC ambition to raise at least 30% of the funds to be borrowed in the capital markets through the issuance of bonds contributing to environmental objectives. The Joint Declaration was published in the Official Journal of European Union.
