Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

La solicitud fue rechazada por Banco Central Europeo.

Dear European Central Bank,

In its 2019 annual report, the ECB indicates that it is "working on the practical implementation of SRI principles in its own funds portfolio, which consists of its paid-up capital and its general reserve fund, as part of its participation in the NGFS and in line with the latter’s recently published SRI guide for central banks’ portfolio management".

However, no additional information is published on the SRI principles targets and specific criteria used by the ECB.

Therefore, under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:
- The specific set of ESG, sustainable or climate related criteria used to invest the ECB's own funds, and/or;
- The detailed SRI strategy and principles of the ECB on its own funds.

Yours faithfully,

Paul Schreiber

Access to documents,

Dear Mr Schreiber,

We refer to your request for access to European Central Bank (ECB)
documents in relation to the sustainable policy on own reserves.

We regret to inform you that, owing to the increased workload created by a
high number of simultaneous requests the ECB has not yet been able to
conclude the internal assessment process and the detailed analysis of all
legal aspects related to the possible disclosure of the requested
documents.

In accordance with article 7.3 of Decision ECB/2004/3, the ECB has decided
to extend the time-limit for responding to your application by 20 working

Subject: [EXT] access to documents request - Sustainable policy on own
reserves

 

Dear European Central Bank,

 

In its 2019 annual report, the ECB indicates that it is "working on the
practical implementation of SRI principles in its own funds portfolio,
which consists of its paid-up capital and its general reserve fund, as
part of its participation in the NGFS and in line with the latter’s
recently published SRI guide for central banks’ portfolio management".

 

However, no additional information is published on the SRI principles
targets and specific criteria used by the ECB.

 

Therefore, under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as
developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain
the following information:

- The specific set of ESG, sustainable or climate related criteria used to
invest the ECB's own funds, and/or;

- The detailed SRI strategy and principles of the ECB on its own funds.

 

Yours faithfully,

 

Paul Schreiber

Dear DG Secretariat of the European Central Bank,

Thank you for your response.

I would like to underline that the information published by the ECB on its SRI strategy are especially scarce. SRI strategies followed by private and public banks, including central banks like the Banque de France, are detailed in specific document that provides ample information on the logic followed and criteria used. This is not the case for the ECB, that only underline that its strategy is to progressively increase the share of "green", without given any precise trajectory, carbon footprint or sectoral information.

Nonetheless, providing the reasoning explained in you response, I will not file a confirmatory application as I do not believe the ECB will review its decision. I can only encourage the ECB, as the Ombudsman recently did following a previous information request, to be more transparent when it comes to its climate impact.

With this in mind, I would like to underline that another information request to the ECB filled on March 3rd 2021 - on the disclosure of TLTRO data - is still pending. This request can be reviewed at https://www.asktheeu.org/en/request/disc....

I'm looking forward to hear the ECB's response and hope it will cease the opportunity to be more transparent on this key monetary operations.

Yours sincerely,

Paul Schreiber
