Sustainable Finance

Vinge is regularly engaged by Swedish and international credit institutions, insurance undertakings, fund managers, investment companies and insurance distributors to provide advice on the SFDR, the taxonomy regulation, the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), sustainability claims in marketing and similar sustainability issues. In recent years, several regulations have been enacted to clarify how sustainability shall be handled and disclosed by companies in the financial sector. The vast majority of these rules have been implemented as a result of initiatives from the EU. The extensive amount means that it can be difficult for financial actors to comprehend the extent of these requirements, or what they mean for them.

We help financial market participants with advice concerning sustainability rules on the financial markets. Among other things, we help our clients to interpret and apply the requirements of the SFDR and the Taxonomy Regulation to ensure both compliance with the requirements and avoid greenwashing. Please contact Viveka Classon and Nils Unckel.
