Recorded Webinar: Meeting the requirements of the EU’s ESG Disclosure Regulation

14 October 2021

The EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) is central to the European drive towards a sustainable financial market. As such, it is complicated and multi-faceted, and makes rigorous demands on financial firms to source large volumes of ESG data and meet numerous reporting obligations.

Key elements of disclosure include sustainability risk, principle adverse impacts, and ESG approach, nascent and complex concepts that asset managers must get to grips with if they are to play a significant and successful role in the rapidly growing market for ESG investing.

This webinar will cover:

  • The key requirements of EU SFDR
  • Data sourcing and management challenges
  • Approaches to cost-effective compliance
  • Helpful technologies, solutions and services
  • The benefits of getting disclosure right
  • And the penalties of getting it wrong
