New demands on FSA

The government has decided to task the Financial Supervisory Authority (FSA) to map and analyse how the Swedish financial sector can contribute more effectively towards achieving the goal of sustainable development
The government has even said in recent talks with the sector that it would be prepared to legislate if there is need for such a step.
“In the case of the fund market, France has already introduced a law obliging financial institutions to report their carbon footprint. I hope the industry will see the need for this before we need to legislate,” says Per Bolund, financial markets minister.
