Description

SustainabilityFocusIn this session we will look at the following three aspects:

- Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) in Europe and next deadlines: introduction of Taxonomy Regulations in full, as well as SFDR 2, in 2022;

- US progress in ESG and catching up with the EU; and

- ESG data – the key challenge for compliance and how development finance institutions (DFI) are helping champion ESG into the mainstream.

SUSTAINABILITY FOCUS sessions marked as such are part of the IBA Annual Conference 2022 sustainability focus on Tuesday and Thursday, grouping sessions discussing different aspects of ESG and sustainability across the different legal fields.
