The EU Taxonomy and the SFDR (Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation) are two parts of the EU action plan on financing sustainable growth. They have a common goal but are in fact two different regulations, which sometimes can lead to confusion. Plus, the repercussions of what these regulations mean for the financial industry as a whole and how they contribute to the fight against greenwashing are just beginning to come to light.
You will learn:
- What do the new regulations and classifications (i.e. "dark green/article 9) mean for investors?
- What is the difference between the two regulations?
- What happened in the past few months and what you need to consider now?
