A brief guide to Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) ‘Reporting and Compliance’

Aspida's SFDR compliance guide helps financial market participants and advisors meet disclosure requirements and reduce the risk of greenwashing.

Lina Moriones | Compliance Support Officer 

The European Union (EU) has set in motion a striving legislative programme to make environmental, social and governance (ESG) concerns a fundamental plank of regulation in the financial services industry.

As part of this plan the EU Commission has established the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR), the Taxonomy Regulation (TR) and THE Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) with the aim to achieve sustainable investments through transparency and disclosures and improve sustainability-related disclosures, comparability of the disclosures for end investors and to reduce the occurrence of adverse sustainability impacts and greenwashing.

Aspida has prepared a document aimed for financial market participants (FMP), financial advisors (FA) and financial products which outlines the main disclosure requirements and provides a step-by-step guide on what FMP and FA are required to do and by when.
