A year from the #CapitalMarketsUnion action plan, we are delivering on our commitments, proposing measures to boost 🇪🇺 capital markets.

Today’s package improves companies' ability to raise capital in 🇪🇺 and ensures Europeans get the best deals for their savings and investments.
The #CapitalMarketsUnion package has a strong focus on helping small companies in small capital markets, making it easier for SMEs to find and access various sources of funding.
Our proposals will ensure investors to have better access to company and trading data, enhancing efficiency and integration of capital markets across the 🇪🇺.
These measures will help Europe’s economic recovery from the COVID-19 crisis, as well as the digital and green transition.
And we are not stopping here, more ambitious Capital Markets Union initiatives are to come in 2022 on listing, open finance, financial education, and insolvency.

Elections must not be a competition of dirty methods.

We want to set out new laws on political advertising, electoral rights and party funding.

The rules we propose aim at protecting election integrity and open democratic debate.

No one should be left behind in European democracy.

We are proposing to update EU rules on electoral rights and funding of political parties and foundations.

Our goal is to support inclusive participation in municipal elections and the 2024 elections to the @Europarl_EN. Image
People must be able to participate in open debates, free from disinformation.

To protect election integrity, we are proposing clear rules on political advertising. Our measures:

🏷️Transparency labels
🎯 Strict rules for targeting and amplification
💶 Fines for breaches Image

Today, we have adopted new proposals to:

🏞️ stop deforestation
♻️ innovate waste management
🌍 make soils healthy

These are tools to move to a circular economy, protect nature and climate, and lift environmental standards in the 🇪🇺 and the world.

From 1990 to 2020 the world has lost 420 m hectares of forest – an area larger than the EU.🌲

Our new rules would guarantee that the products that EU citizens buy and use on the EU market do not contribute to global deforestation and forest degradation.
Under the revised Regulation on waste shipments, we propose:

🚚stronger rules on waste exports
📊more efficient system for the circulation of waste
🖐️action against waste trafficking

Our new rules will boost the circular economy, while not harming the environment and health.

💪 A resilient banking sector for a stronger economy.

Implementing the #Basel3 agreement will make the EU financial sector more stable while taking also into account important new developments, like #SustainableFinanceEU.

🙌 Today, we adopted a review of EU banking rules.
#Basel3 Implementation: Strengthening the resilience of the banking sector across the EU means a more secure economic and financial system.

📑Our new legislative proposals ensure an alignment of the EU rules on capital requirements with international standards.
#COVID19 is a reminder of the importance of having a resilient banking system. The adoption of the #Basel3 framework will help banks continue standing strong in future crises. #SafeSavings
