In addition to developing the Sustainable Finance Strategy, the Committee advises the Federal Government on its positioning in national, European and international discussions on sustainable finance. Furthermore, it develops proposals for the further development of the risk and opportunity management within the financial system in order to adequately reflect extra-financial indicators in the areas of environment, social affairs and governance in addition to financial indicators.
The members of the Committee are supported in their work by permanent observers.
In-depth discussions take place in the working groups “Strategy and Communication”, “Financial Market Stability and Risk Management”, “Disclosure, Transparency and Impact” and “End Customers”. Where necessary, the work of the working groups was supported by valuable contributions from external experts.
