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

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

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,
