SFDR

The EU’s Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) seeks to enhance transparency in the financial markets about sustainability-related claims, prevent greenwashing and channel capital flows toward sustainable economic activities. Impact Europe wants to help tailor it to deliver positive impact for people and planet.

About

SFDR seeks to enhance transparency in the financial markets about sustainability-related claims, prevent greenwashing and channel capital flows toward sustainable economic activities. Since the SFDR took effect, however, Impact Europe (formerly EVPA) noticed growing concerns with the regulation among impact fund managers.  

Fortunately, at the end of 2022, the European Commission announced a public consultation. With the goal of raising impact actors’ voices, we gathered insights from 21 impact fund managers across six European countries, collectively managing €1.881 billion in Assets Under Management.  

Our full report details these fund managers’ perspectives; the top takeaways below boil their message down for busy readers.
