In the rapidly evolving world of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investing, staying abreast of regulatory changes and trends is imperative for stakeholders. Following the success of our US-focused session, Morgan Lewis is proud to present the European edition of the ESG Investments Global Regulatory Series. This pivotal session offers an in-depth exploration of the regulatory landscape governing ESG investments in Europe, providing key insights and updates tailored for investors, fund managers, and legal professionals.

As Europe currently leads with some of the most progressive ESG regulations globally, our session will dissect the implications of these regulations on investment strategies and compliance. From the EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) governing disclosures made by Article 6, 8, and 9 financial products to its interaction with the EU Taxonomy for Environmentally Sustainable Activities and the upcoming UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) Sustainability Disclosure Requirements and Labelling Regime, this program is designed to navigate the complex, multijurisdictional regulatory framework that shapes ESG investing in Europe.

Please join our team as they dive into critical topics such as the dynamics between Article 6, 8, and 9 disclosure classification, navigating changing investor demands for ESG product across jurisdictions, upcoming and proposed changes to EU SFDR impact investing, and the new UK FCA anti-greenwashing rule. This session offers a comprehensive understanding of current regulations and insight into market trends, the increased risks of private litigation, and potential future regulatory developments.
