Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation ("SFDR") is an important milestone in the EU Commission's action plan on sustainable finance. This regulation aims to provide greater transparency on the degree of sustainability of financial products in order to channel investment flows towards truly sustainable investments while preventing greenwashing.

Since 10 March 2021 with SFDR level 1, financial market participants must publish ESG-related information on different supports: website, pre contractual documents and annual report at entity and product level.

Level 2 was published in the Official Journal of the European Union on Monday 25 July 2022, meaning that as from 1 January 2023, financial market participants need to disclose sustainability related information in pre-contractual documents (i.e., prospectuses for investment funds), on websites and in periodic reports (i.e., the annual reports for investment funds). The extent and the type of disclosure depends mainly on whether the financial product follows the regime of Article 8 or 9 of SFDR, while provisions related to PAIs-related disclosures also apply to the so-called article 6 products.

By the end of this course, participants will be able to have sufficient knowledge to understand how SFDR interacts with the other regulations and the consequences on its implementation, as well as the potential impact of SFDR at entity level and product level on their reporting.
