Sustainable Finance Disclosures Regulation (SFDR)
As part of this action plan, the Sustainable Finance Disclosures Regulation (EU) 2019/2088 (SFDR), which sets out sustainability-related disclosure requirements for the financial services sector, was enacted in November 2019, and applicable from 10 March 2021. It aims at improving sustainability-related disclosures and comparability of the disclosures for end-investors, and to reduce the occurrence of greenwashing.
SFDR, in its article 2 (17), provides a wide definition of what a sustainable investment is, leaving some room for interpretation and implementation.
Please see below our detailed approach and methodology to sustainable investment.
