ESG and Sustainability

The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has finalized new guidelines to tackle greenwashing in the investment sector. These guidelines require that at least 80% of investments in ESG or sustainability funds meet specific environmental, social, or governance criteria. The rules also set exclusion criteria for various sustainability-related terms to prevent misleading fund names. Scheduled to take effect three months after publication, with a six-month transitional period for existing funds, these measures aim to protect investors from unsubstantiated sustainability claims and enhance transparency and credibility in fund naming.
