The Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) was introduced by the European Commission to improve transparency for sustainable investment products, to prevent greenwashing and to elevate transparency around ESG and sustainability claims across the financial market. Financial services firms have been, and still are, in the process of establishing what measures will need to be leveraged to align with the regulation. The introduction of the SFDR has also underscored the relevance of software solutions to automate and optimize reporting, particularly given the categorization of funds between Articles 6, 8 or 9 – all of which warrant different considerations. This report aims to illuminate the requirements mandated under the SFDR and unpack the offerings available to support financial services firms disclosing for the SFDR both at the product and the entity level.
