Position Paper on Improving the SFDR

The paper “Position Paper on Improving the SFDR – Proposal for financial product categories from a sustainability perspective” was produced in cooperation between the Sustainable Finance Research Group at the University of Hamburg represented by Prof. Timo Busch, Advanced Impact Research (AIR) and F.I.R.S.T e.V.. It has been nourished by the review- and assessment works that have been done for several hundreds of investment funds regularly applying for the SRI quality standard FNG-Label.

It proposes categories for financial products from a sustainability perspective in the context of the current targeted consultation of the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR). The goal is to find a balance between clear terminology, consistency between existing sustainable finance regulations, clarity of proposed categories for investors and minimum effort for transitioning to the new categories.
