EFAMA responds to the opportunity to provide feedback to the Article 8 Taxonomy Regulation (EU) 2020/852 (‘taxonomy’) draft delegated act, which the European Commission published for consultation on 7 May. We highlight that the provisions on investee companies in this delegated act will serve as the primary source of input for asset managers´ own disclosures on taxonomy compliance at both product and entity levels.
The asset management industry plays a key role in meeting the objectives of the European Green Deal to make the EU’s economy sustainable. Our members integrate ESG considerations across their risk management processes and investment decisions. They develop sustainable investment products and foster transparency to fight greenwashing. This increases choice, trust and, in turn, retail investors’ participation. Overall, such efforts mobilise capital towards a fair and just transition to a climate-neutral economy by 2050.
EFAMA actively contributes to the development and implementation of EU’s sustainable finance initiatives. Among them are a comprehensive transparency framework for financial market participants, standards and labels for green financial products, classification of green economic activities and policies enhancing corporate sustainability reporting.
EFAMA´s comments on draft delegated acts under article 8 of the Taxonomy regulation
EFAMA replies to ESA's consultation on taxonomy-related sustainability disclosures in SFDR
The European Find and Asset Management Association appreciates the opportunity to submit its views to the European Supervisory Authorities (ESAs) on the Joint Consultation Paper (CP) regarding draft regulatory technical standards (RTS) for taxonomy-related sustainability disclosures pursuant to Article 8(4), 9(6) and 11(5) of Regulation (EU) 2019/2088 (Taxonomy Regulation or TR).
IFRS consultation on sustainability reporting
EFAMA shares the urgent need to improve the consistency and comparability of sustainability reporting at a global level. We believe this is a crucial enabling factor to the success of the global efforts to mainstream sustainability in the financial sector. A global set of internationally recognised sustainability reporting standards would help establish an effective chain of information from corporates to the benefit of investors.
