The EU policy team works on seven policy priorities: the Taxonomy, disclosure regulation for investors (SFDR) and corporates (CSRD), fiduciary duties, stewardship, real economy climate issues and mandatory due diligence. We are also building on the findings of the flagship A Legal Framework for Impact report, to guide policy recommendations to better integrate sustainability impacts into EU financial legislation.
Whilst PRI supports the proposed expanded social PAI indicators and climate target-setting proposals, policymakers will need to maintain consistency with the final ESRS standards as adopted by the European Commission to ensure investors have sufficient data to produce meaningful reports as per their SFDR obligations.

Supporting the ESAs proposed features of greenwashing, we encourage EU policymakers to complete existing standards and policies to further promote clarity, transparency and accountability in the EU framework.
This webinar is aimed at practitioners involved in making EU taxonomy disclosures. The session will provide an overview of the PRI’s latest research on how investors are approaching taxonomy implementation. It will also include a panel discussion with practitioners and policy experts, followed by a Q&A session. Panellists will discuss ...
