The transition towards a sustainable society is one of the most important challenges of our time. The AFM recognises the importance of this transition and encourages financial institutions to play their part. Financial institutions mobilise capital for sustainable investment by governments, companies and households and contribute to improving the sustainability of businesses by focussing on sustainable practices in their business operations.

The AFM’s mission relates to the sustainability transition in several ways, providing the basis for the AFM’s definition of its own role therein. The availability and quality of information throughout the entire chain continues to be one of the key focus areas of the AFM. This applies all the way from prospectuses and integrated reporting to transparency regarding the integration of sustainability risks in investment portfolios and their effects on sustainability factors.
