New Regulation in the ESG area
Importantly, policy efforts are now being consolidated and several regulatory initiatives have emerged, putting market participants under increasing pressure. The EU Action Plan on Sustainable Finance and the European Green Deal is at the center of these developments. Furthermore, organizations are subject to ESG related requirements in existing financial regulations as well as new demands through associated initiatives such as:
- the EU Taxonomy
- the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR)
- the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD)
- the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosure (TCFD)
- the European Green Bond Standard (EUGBS)
All of these new regulations, directives and other initiatives may lead to quite substantial demands on changes in your operational business in order to remain compliant. With the European Commission’s main goal being to reorient the capital flows within the union towards green investments, a proper ESG effort is encompassing.
