SDR: How Can the UK Build an Effective Regulatory Framework?

Regulatory Compliance January 19, 2023 James Alexander (UKSIF), Chris Dodwell (Impax AM), Thomas Willman and Johanna Conil-Lacoste (Clarity AI)

The consultation opened by the FCA late in 2022 presents the UK with a unique opportunity to build a robust regulatory framework. The goal: to empower consumers, minimize greenwashing and promote sustainable finance. The Sustainability Disclosure Requirements (SDR) will mandate the information that sustainable funds will have to disclose in the UK, similar to what SFDR is already doing in the European Union. Additionally, the package of measures outlined by the FCA includes three labels to represent different types of sustainability: ESG Focus, ESG Improvers, and ESG Impact. All stakeholders are welcome to submit their feedback by January 25th.

  • Learn from industry experts as to the market expectations on this new regulation.
  • Understand the main differences with the SFDR, and identify some of the lessons learnt which the FCA should take into consideration.
  • Anticipate and address potential challenges to the SDR framework. 
  • Explore strategies and solutions that will help navigate the new regulations without adding complexity.

Speakers: James Alexander, CEO of UKSIF, Chris Dodwell, Head of Policy and Advocacy at Impax Asset Management, and Clarity AI’s Tom Willman, Senior Product Researcher.
