Goal of Achieving Transparency
The SFDR was introduced by the European Commission in 2021 and sets out mandatory ESG disclosure obligations for asset managers and other market participants. The goal is to improve the transparency of sustainability risks and the impacts of investment processes and strategies. SFDR articles 8 and 9 signal the highest possible sustainability levels for financial products.
- Article 8: Financial products that promote environmental or social characteristics.
- Article 9: Financial products with sustainable investment objectives.
