Make sure you know what needs to be done

The first binding regulations deriving from the EU Action Plan on Sustainable Finance demand that financial institutions adapt a series of policies, management processes, marketing materials, and disclosure processes by 2021:

  • Regulation (EU) 2019/2088 on sustainability‐related disclosures in the financial services sector; and
  • Regulation (EU) 2019/2089 regarding EU climate transition benchmarks, EU Paris-aligned benchmarks, and sustainability-related disclosures for benchmarks.

These regulations entail a major paradigm shift in terms of how financial institutions address sustainability issues. What was deemed to be best practice yesterday – such as the integration of sustainability issues into investment decision-making processes – has now become the baseline regulatory expectation for access to market. Financial market players need to find practical solutions to address complex concepts such as sustainability risk and principle adverse impacts – and this on the basis of ESG data that rarely meet the requirements of financial institutions.
