The Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) – What next?
The Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) is a key part of the EU’s efforts to attract the private investment Europe needs to finance the transition to a green and sustainable economy. Designed to bring transparency, the SFDR was one of the first pillars of the EU’s sustainable finance framework to be put in place. The regulation is, however, not entirely working as intended. That is why the European Commission has launched a comprehensive assessment of the SFDR. The aim is to ensure legal certainty and that the SFDR plays its part in tackling greenwashing.
