Today the European Supervisory Authorities (EBA, EIOPA and ESMA) published a Consultation Paper seeking input on draft Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) on the content, methodologies and presentation of information in respect of the sustainability indicators for Simple, Transparent and Standardised (STS) securitisations.
The proposed draft RTS aim to:
- facilitate disclosure by the originators of the principal adverse impacts of assets financed by STS securitisations on environmental, social and governance-related factors;
- supplement the single rulebook under the Securitisation Regulation as amended by the Capital Markets Recovery Package (CMRP);
- draw upon the ESAs’ work in respect of sustainability-related disclosures in the financial services under the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFRD).
Consultation process and next steps
The closing date for responses to the consultation is 2 July 2022.
All contributions should be submitted online at www.esma.europa.eu under the heading ‘Your input - Consultations’. Respondents are invited to use the “response form”.
Following the consultation period, the draft RTS will be finalised and submitted to the European Commission.
