The Financial Sector Conduct Authority (FSCA) called for comments on a draft directive on sustainability reporting and disclosure requirements, which sets out various requirements that will allow the Pension Fund Registrar to monitor compliance with the principles of Regulation 28. The directive, in its draft form, requires pension fund’s investment policy statement to show how its investment approach ensures “sustainable long term performance”, how it applies ESG factors, and how it measures compliance of its assets with these ESG factors. It will also require the investment policy statement to address the “active ownership” policy. The Fund made comments and conributions to the draft directive.
