Understanding Sustainable Finance Regulations and Standards with ISS ESG

Explore recent updates to ISS ESG’s Regulatory Solutions, including new Portfolio Reports on EU Taxonomy and SFDR as well as Screening Solutions for Regional ESG Labels and Standards.

Over the past year, institutional investors have faced numerous challenges regarding compliance with new ESG Regulation, particularly in the EU. The requirements include disclosure on how you take into account sustainability risk factors and adverse impacts of your investments, as well as reporting against specific indicators and metrics, including the degree of alignment with the EU Taxonomy. Moreover, mandatory regulation is complemented by a wide array of global and regional voluntary standards which are gaining traction in the market.

In this session, an executive team of experts set out to deliver an overview of the current state of Sustainable Finance regulations and standards globally, as well as an account of the latest and potential future developments. The discussion will explore the impact that reporting and disclosure obligations have on Institutional Investors’ strategy and internal processes, as well as demonstrate how the ISS ESG solutions can assist affected financial market participants in meeting those requirements.
