GET FAMILIAR WITH THE SFDR
What is SFDR?
The Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) is the first regulation set by the EU with the purpose of reorienting capital flow towards sustainable finance. By inserting SFDR to provide transparency on sustainability within the financial market, greenwashing can be prevented.
How to implement the EU SFDR
Define which parts of the SFDR apply to your organization and get familiar with your sustainability actions and status. Determine what actions are needed and create an action plan for your sustainability risk policy, due diligence policy and remuneration policy.
Article 6, 8 & 9
According to the SFDR’s classification system, a fund will be classified as an article 6,8 or 9 fund. Article 6 applies to funds without a sustainability scope. Article 8 applies to those which promote environmental or social characteristics. Article 9 applies to those that have sustainable investment as their objective.
Who is affected by the SFDR?
The SFDR regulation applies to the financial market participants (FMPs) who are defined as the “big players”. This includes investment firms, pension funds, asset managers, insurance companies, banks, venture capital funds, credit institutions offering portfolio management and financial advisors.
