NEA - IFNEC Financing Initiative - Taxonomies, Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) criteria and the role of nuclear energy

Online - July 19, 2021

ESG

 

IFNEC, in cooperation with the Nuclear Energy Agency, organised the second webinar on ‘Taxonomies, Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) criteria and the role of nuclear energy’ as part of the NEA – IFNEC Nuclear Financing Webinar Series on Monday 19 July, 14:00-15:30 CEST. 

There has been a growing emphasis in the financial sector in financing sustainable infrastructure and energy projects. This emphasis in sustainability has led to the emergence of sustainable financing taxonomies and green or climate bonds. Several countries and regions are also developing their own taxonomies to align the regulation of the financial sector with long-term climate policy objectives. However, it is not yet clear how these emerging mechanisms will be applied to the energy sector and decarbonization technologies in order to ensure a level playing field across projects. This webinar reviewed ongoing initiatives to develop a level playing field for sustainable finance and how nuclear power may be impacted.

This webinar was moderated by Paul Murphy, Managing Director of Murphy Energy & Infrastructure Consulting, LLC

Opening remarks by Diane Cameron, Head of Division, Nuclear Technology Development and Economics, OECD Nuclear Energy Agency
