On January 7, 2022, ISDA submitted a response to the Financial Conduct Authority’s (FCA) discussion paper on sustainability disclosure requirements and investment labels, which sets out criteria that could underpin a UK environmental, social and governance labelling system, as well as a minimum criteria for responsible or sustainable funds. In the response, ISDA highlights the role of derivatives in sustainable investing and their key role in achieving the goals outlined by the UK government in its green finance strategy. ISDA encourages the FCA to consider a principles-based approach to setting sustainability disclosure requirements and investment labels and advocates for the exclusion of derivatives traded on recognized investment exchanges from the proposed labelling regime.
