Selected human rights indicators in the context of current EU regulation: Towards more social sustainability in the financial and economic system
Part II: Substantial Contribution
In March 2018, the European Commission published its Action Plan on Financing Sustainable Growth. Part of the plan calls for the EU to develop classification systems for environmentally and socially sustainable activities to help direct private sector financing to such activities. This is the second briefing paper of a research project aimed at discussing and developing concepts and indicators for the standardised measurement of socially sustainable activities in alignment with international human rights.
