SFDR: A BRIEF OVERVIEW

The EU Regulation on sustainability-related disclosures in the financial services sector (“SFDR”) was published in December 2019 Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation and forms part of the EU Sustainable Finance Action Plan. The aim of the regulation is to harmonise disclosure standards, creating a common framework for investors to consider a fund’s sustainable credentials and compare funds with respect to their environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks and sustainable investment objectives.

Funds fall into Article 8 or 9 under SFDR:

  • Article 8: Products that promote environmental or social characteristics and underlying investments, follow good governance practices.
  • Article 9: Products that have sustainable investments as an objective and underlying investments, follow good governance practices.

    SFDR is EU-wide legislation and is being widely embraced by investors as the new standard for reporting on and offering sustainable products.

    BlackRock has developed its approach to classification to meet the requirements of the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) implemented in March 2021. BlackRock classified all funds as Articles 8 or 9 based on our interpretation of the classification. As further EU guidance and legislation is published and implemented – including the Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) – this approach will evolve.

    Find out which funds BlackRock classifies as Article 8 and 9 using the iShares product screener.
