    Ifølge mediet Responible-Investor viser et revideret forslag til den EU-vedtagede kommende bæredygtig mærkningsordning (EcoLabel) for finansielle produkter, at kravene lempes i forhold til kommissionens oprindelige formuleringer.

    Ordningen omfatter finansielle produkter og skal give detail investorer mulighed for at identificere produkter, der finansierer overgangen til en lavemissionsøkonomi. De reviderede kriterier kræver, at mindst 60% af porteføljeaktiverne er investeret i EcoLabel-berettigede grønne investeringer. Det er en reduktion fra den forrige tærskel på 70%

    Til Responible Investor siger Researcher og Policy Officer, Edoardo Carlucci, fra not-profit organisationen Better Finance, at: “that the original proposals were preferable, adding that the second draft “provides too much flexibility for managers to comply with the green threshold and will result in a huge variety of labelled funds”.

    Videre hedder det i artiklen, at: He claimed that the new criteria would confuse the market “as it is not immediately clear how green an Ecolabel fund is, whether it has the maximum 60% of assets invested in eligible green securities or the bare minimum of 20%. “We don’t think the most important thing for Ecolabel products is to maximise market share. Rather, it is to create a new generation of finance products with high environmental standards,” udtaler Edoardo Carlucci.
