ESAs Public hearing on taxonomy-related product disclosures

Date : 29/04/2021 | Duration: 13:00 - 17:30 (Paris time) | Location: VIA CONFERENCE CALL |

The European Supervisory Authorities (ESAs) are organising an online public event on 29 April, from 13:00-17:30.  During this event, the ESAs will present their proposals and open a dialogue with stakeholders on draft Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) on the content and presentation of product disclosures (covered by the Taxonomy Regulation) imposing additional rules for the subset of financial products that make sustainable investments with environmental objectives under the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR). The ESAs have proposed RTS that would amend their 4 February 2021 general RTS under SFDR in a consultation paper. The consultation paper contains proposals on how and to what extent activities funded by the product are taxonomy-aligned.

The public hearing will be of interest to stakeholders affected by the additional taxonomy-related product disclosures, in particular financial market participants, their representative associations, environmental associations, investor representatives or consumer bodies, and consultants or academics and representatives from the EU and national institutions. 

Registration

The ESAs invite interested stakeholders to register using the link provided below to take part in the hearing. Participants will be able to join the webinar online or by dialling in. Due to the technical limitations of the online webinar environment, there is a limited number of places available. Places will be allocated on a first come first serve basis. Please note that participation will be limited to two participants per organisation to ensure diversity in the participation.

The agenda for the hearing will be released closer to the date of the hearing and will cover the scope, approach and content of the consultation paper.
