COP28 & SDR Update Webinar

05 Dec 2023
COP28 & SDR Update Webinar


With COP28 commencing on 30th November, global leaders gathered to advance the agenda for tackling climate change, but what impact will this have on the financial services and investment landscapes? ADNOC's president and host of this year's crucial climate summit is reported by the BBC to be using the event to arrange oil deals so what chance will COP28 have in delivering the outcomes we need?

With the FCA's new Sustainability Disclosure Requirements (SDR) and investment labels and Anti-Greenwashing Guidance released beforehand, this exclusive webinar, saw industry experts discuss what the SDR policy means against the backdrop of COP28.

This online webinar panel session, moderated by UKSIF, provided updates on the latest news from COP28, with commentary on how this may affect funds aligned to the original Paris Agreement; while one week on from the release of the SDR announcement, we pulled out the key dates, obligations and requirements. The discussion focused on how the latest climate pledges and new regulations will drive the future of sustainable investment from a financial adviser's perspective and a fund manager's perspective.
