ESAs put forward amendments to sustainability disclosures for the financial sector

The three European Supervisory Authorities (EBA, EIOPA and ESMA – ESAs) are today publishing their Final Report amending the draft Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) to the Delegated Regulation supplementing the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR). The ESAs propose adding new social indicators and streamlining the framework for the disclosure of principal adverse impacts of investment decisions on the environment and society.

The ESAs also suggest new product disclosures regarding “greenhouse gas emissions reduction” targets.

Additionally, the ESAs propose further technical revisions to the SFDR Delegated Regulation:

Improvements to the disclosures on how sustainable investments “Do No Significant Harm” (DNSH) to the environment and society;
Simplification of the pre-contractual and periodic disclosure templates for financial products; and
Other technical adjustments concerning, among others, the treatment of derivatives, the calculation of sustainable investments, and provisions for financial products with underlying investment options.
