SFDR for Asset Owners (SFDR4AO) aims to bring together academics, senior investment specialists, and asset owners to enkindle and drive in-depth discussions surrounding Sustainability Related Financial Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) reporting and disclosures.

The event will host the UK asset owner RI roundtable on ‘Aligning expectations’. The first part of this session will showcase research assessing voting activities of asset owners and managers, using oil and gas as a critical example to highlight the challenges and complexities of investing and exercising stewardship through the energy transition. Subsequent breakout discussions (invite-only) will enable a constructive dialogue around the pace and scale of climate action needed to achieve net-zero alignment, the extent to which stewardship strategies have reinforced climate ambitions and future expectations around pathways for voting escalation.

The conference will also encompass an award ceremony for top-performing asset owners. Previous award winners include Swedfund (Sweden), APG and PGGM (Netherlands), and CDC (France).
