Primer: The EU's Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation

March 10, 2021, International Financial Law Review

John Ahern spoke with International Financial Law Review about the EU’s Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation’s (SFDR) impact on financial markets. Mr. Ahern says, “Costs associated with compliance with the regulation will ultimately be passed on to investors. In addition, if different regimes develop in different geographies, there is a risk of further increased costs and confusion.”

He adds, “It is important that there are multilateral discussions and exchanges among regulators aimed at harmonising requirements to the extent possible so that cross border activities are not unnecessarily complicated or burdensome. The European supervisory authorities are due to report to the European Commission on best practices and voluntary reporting standards by September 10, 2022, and by December 30, 2022, the European Commission is due to evaluate the application of the SFDR.”
