OECD: Financial consumers and sustainable finance – Policy implications and approaches

Presse release 23/15

On 24 July 2023, the OECD published its report on financial consumers and sustainable finance – Policy implications and approaches.

This report represents an important contribution to the international policy context on sustainable finance relating specifically to the issues, risks, and opportunities for financial consumers.

It represents a first piece of work by the OECD Task Force on Financial Consumer Protection on this topic.

This report explores issues, opportunities, and challenges for financial consumers in relation to sustainable finance. It examines current trends in terms of consumer demand for, and experience with, sustainable finance products, as well as new risks to consumers posed by sustainable finance products. This report also explores financial consumer protection tools and responses available to policy makers and oversight authorities.

The CSSF, as a national competent authority, participated to the preparation as well as to the drafting of this report.
