The European Money Markets Institute

ESG CP Transparency Monitor

In line with the mission of facilitating the smooth functioning of Money Markets and fostering their integration, the European Money Markets Institute (“EMMI”) is preparing to launch an initiative to support the transparency in the ESG commercial paper market. 

EMMI will collect up to date information from applicants about the main ESG features included in their commercial paper programmes and publish it in a standardised and harmonised way. The published information will be accessible for consultation by all interested parties. The service will be launched in June and more information will be available in the coming weeks.

EMMI does not provide any judgement nor valuation of the information provided by issuers, which is published as it is. Issuers are responsible for providing the information following EMMI’s requirements, and for ensuring the data is accurate.

If you are interested in this initiative, please send an email to with your questions or comments.

Dissemination of our benchmarks’ rates

The euro money market reference rate


Euribor® is the unsecured money market reference rate for the euro. The benchmark was declared a critical benchmark by the European Commission in 2016 because of its systemic importance for financial stability

The euro forward-looking term rate


Efterm® is a forward-looking €STR-based term rate. It is designed as a fallback rate to Euribor®

To protect their integrity and reliability, Euribor® and Efterm® benefit from:

  • A solid Governance Framework establishing the requirements and principles related to their provision and setting out effective control arrangements to ensure their integrity and reliability in all market circumstances
  • An independent Oversight Committee of market experts. They follow markets developments and exercise an unbiased oversight of all aspects related to the provision of the benchmarks, including their Governance Framework and methodology

As an Authorised Administrator, The European Money Markets Institute is duly supervised by the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA). ESMA substituted the Belgian Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA) on 1 January 2022.
