What is SFDR?
European regulatory authorities are leading the global transition to a more sustainable economy through multiple regulatory initiatives, one of them being the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation, or SFDR. Its main goal is to harmonize disclosures on the integration of sustainability risks and the promotion of sustainable investments in the EU. SFDR could revolutionize sustainability reporting – and, in turn, rescope the data that companies track to measure their ESG performance.
