LSFI is delighted to announce the launch of a new section within its website to help financial professionals understand and stay up to date with the EU sustainable finance regulation in a simplified way.
What is this online toolkit about?
The online toolkit “Take Action” regulation provides an overview of the key EU sustainable finance legislative piece, explaining what each of them is about, how they affect financial services, their chronology, how they are interconnected, and a collection of relevant links to official sources.
The regulations covered are: Taxonomy, Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR), Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II (MiFID II), Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD), Low Carbon Benchmark Regulation and Green Bond Standard (GBS).
What can I find in this online toolkit?
The new website consists of different sections:
- In short: An overview of what each legislative piece means and their key characteristics.
- In depth: A detailed look at every legislative piece, explaining what each of them is about, how they affect financial services, their chronology, how they are interconnected with each other and a collection of relevant links to official sources.
- Timeline: A visual snapshot of the main dates characterising each legislation, such as adoption and application dates or status of consultations.
- Definitions and acronyms: A list of the acronyms used and the definitions of some key concepts regularly appearing when covering the regulation in depth.
The section is part of the LSFI toolkit Take Action, which includes a section also on Instruments and Training.
