[1]. Spain and other countries call on EU not to list gas-fired power plants as sustainable investment projects

From 2022, financial product providers in the EU region are required to disclose their investment compliance with the EU sustainable investment classification climate standards. On March 10, 2021, Denmark, Spain, Ireland, Luxembourg and Austria submitted letters to the European Commission, hoping that the commission would insist on not including gas-fired power plants in the plan of sustainable investment. In November 2020, some provisions on natural gas in the European Commission’s sustainable investment classification met opposition from Bulgaria and Poland. Previous original documents showed that gas-fired power plants could be listed as sustainable investments if their carbon emissions reached 100 grams of CO2 equivalent per kilowatt hour. However, today’s gas-fired power plants with the highest environmental protection level are still unable to meet this standard. The European Commission plans to complete the final sustainable investment classification by late April 2021.

[4]. The results of the open finance questionnaire released by the HKMA

In December 2019, the financial conduct authority (FCA) launched a questionnaire and consultation on “open finance”. Affected by COVID-19, the deadline for investigation was postponed to October 2020, and eventually 169 replies were received. Statistical results show that open finance can bring many benefits to consumers, such as increasing market competition, improving the level of investment advice, expanding the types and channels of innovative financial products. At the same time, open finance will also bring new risks, causing new problems such as data ethics. Appropriate regulation is necessary to manage risks and increase the proportion of consumers using open financial services. In the future, FCA will join hands with other UK regulators to promote smart data legislation and other industry standards, and encourage more open finance and identity recognition start-ups to participate in the FCA regulatory sandbox program.
