The EU has set out its sustainability ambitions in the EU Action Plan for Sustainable Finance. The Information Regulation (Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation) and Taxonomy Regulation are part of this.
How should sustainability risks be reported, what implementation issues do financial organizations face and how can financial organizations tailor implementation to their sustainable ambitions? These questions will be answered during the webinar.
The webinar will be given in Dutch via MS Teams. It will be an interactive session with plenty of room for questions. If you have a question that you would like to see addressed by our speakers, please send it to email@example.com prior to the webinar.
Addition Knowledge House, together with 4ESG Consulting, is organizing a webinar on Thursday, July 8, 2021 from 4-5 PM with the following topics:

Legislation, all ins and out.
Miranda Haak, partner at 4ESG Consulting
The new European sustainability legislation affects all financial institutions. Even if an institution does little or nothing with sustainability, action will have to be taken. The new legislation is extensive and complex. Miranda will look back on how financial parties have implemented level 1 of the SFDR, what the requirements are from SFDR level 2 and the Taxonomy and what the interfaces are between these regulations.

Miranda is a lawyer specializing in environmental and financial law, environmental expert and program manager. She is also a supervisory director at Afvalzorg NV
Session #2 – June 30, 2021 16.20 – 16.40
Sustainability Risk Reports
Harm Prins, partner at DEX Data Explorers
Following the entry into force of the EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR), many participants in financial markets and financial advisors will be subject to new reporting requirements from 10 March 2021. SFDR prescribes rules to promote both the integration of sustainability risks into investment processes and reporting to investors. To support the SFDR processes, Addition provides DEX Regulatory Suite for SFDR. DEX RS generates regulatory reports using the SFDR specifications.
Harm is a partner at DEX Data Explorers, specialist in Regulatory reporting. Harm is an administrative computer scientist and has extensive experience in the government, the insurance industry and the banking world, with the focus in recent years mainly on setting up regulatory reporting and data management.

Session #3 – 30 June 2021 16.40 – 17.00
Bas Knol, partner at 4ESG Consulting
Financial institutions have different ambitions in the field of socially responsible investment (SRI). This is not only reflected in the instruments that are used to realize these SRI ambitions, but also in the way in which sustainability legislation is implemented. Bas will consider the relationship between the level of ambition and how the SFDR and Taxonomy can be implemented and what implementation issues financial institutions encounter.
