The energy transition and the emergence of sustainable finance are key issues for financial markets, financial stability and investor protection. The European Commission is rolling out an ambitious action plan while the AMF is also committed to sustainable finance and is implementing the road map that it defined in 2018.

The AMF’s commitment
A major focus of our #Supervision2022 strategic plan, the AMF intends to take into consideration sustainable finance in all its missions and activities. Our objective is to change practices, increase transparency and facilitate the consideration of sustainability issues as well as the mobilisation of capital for more sustainable activities.
In its November 2018 roadmap, the AMF sets out the various areas of its action for sustainable finance, based on support, supervision and education. It is a strong commitment that stems from the conviction that the regulator has an important role to play in encouraging and accelerating transformation, while preserving the conditions of trust.
Article 77 29 of the PACTE law passed in spring 2019 also recognised this new responsibility by defining a specific mission for the AMF, making it responsible for ensuring the quality of information provided by asset management companies on their investment strategy and their management of risks related to the effects of climate change.
Priority areas of action for the AMF in 2021
- Help issuers to improve the quality of non-financial information and contribute to improving the robustness of European regulations on non-financial information
- Support the financial market in impletementing the regulatory framework and in managing and integrating issues relating to sustanaible finance and climate
- Support innovative approaches.
