The Commission launched a public consultation ahead of the presentation of a legislative proposal to introduce an EU Digital Levy by January 2023. For EFAMA, any new tax legislation on “digital activities” (or “digital transactions”) should not be borne by the end-investors. Our understanding is that the industry’s activities should not be in scope of the new tax.
Asset managers unleash the vast potential of sustainable finance by channelling capital into ESG investments and engaging with investee companies to improve their sustainability profile and foster long-term prosperity.
To strengthen the asset managers role in financing the green transition, EFAMA contributes to the development and implementation of the EU Sustainable Finance agenda. This includes initiatives to fight greenwashing, increase transparency, improve the flow of ESG data and integrate sustainability in corporate governance.
