In the News: Net Zero Investor: SDR: A regulatory saviour?

In October last year the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) proposed a package of measures aimed at clamping down on greenwashing, initially targeted at the retail investor market.

Known as the Sustainability Disclosure Requirements (SDR), among the measures were three dedicated sustainable investment labels (Sustainable Impact, Sustainable Focus and Sustainable Improvers) as well as disclosure requirements and restrictions on the use of sustainability-related terms in product naming and marketing.

Tom Wieczorek, Confleunce’s Head of Analytics Product Management, offers his thoughts on the FCA’s new measures in a new article from Net Zero Investor.
