The Q&A of SFDR
🚨 The long-awaited Q&A of SFDR has just been published.
🇪🇺 Eurosif welcomes the clarifications to the SFDR’s scope of application contained in the Q&A.
👆 However, uncertainty persists on the classification of Article 6, 8 & 9 products – arguably the more urgent issue.
👆 More detail will be needed in the Level 1 text of SFDR before Article 8 & 9 may be regarded as meaningful product categories, and to ensure that SFDR delivers on the objectives of transparency, comparability and integrity.
👆 Accordingly, we look forward to the European Commission’s actions under the Renewed Strategy to specify minimum sustainability
criteria for Article 8 products as a compliment to today’s SFDR Q&A.
