During this public event, the European Supervisory Authorities will present their proposals and open a dialogue with stakeholders on draft Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) on the content and presentation of product disclosures (covered by the Taxonomy Regulation) imposing additional rules for the subset of financial products that make sustainable investments with environmental objectives under the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR). The ESAs have proposed RTS that would amend their 4 February 2021 general RTS under SFDR in a consultation paper. The consultation paper contains proposals on how and to what extent activities funded by the product are taxonomy-aligned.
The public hearing will be of interest to stakeholders affected by the additional taxonomy-related product disclosures, in particular financial market participants, their representative associations, environmental associations, investor representatives or consumer bodies, and consultants or academics and representatives from the EU and national institutions. The public hearing is to be held in the afternoon of 29 April and will be organised as an on-line webinar.
The agenda for the hearing will be released closer to the date of the hearing and will cover the scope, approach and content of the consultation paper.
Here are the slides presented during this open hearing. The recording will be available soon.
