Go deeper : The regulatory framework on impact is poised to be reinforced

Impact is not defined by the European regulation on sustainable finance.

An impact fund is defined as such by relying on recognized methodologies (FIR, Institute for Sustainable Finance, Global Impact Investing Network, Impact Management Project) or on a proprietary methodology, which is often inspired by the SDGs.

European regulators, including ESMA, have repeatedly warned against the misuse of the SDGs to substantiate an impact fund's strategy. The regulatory framework on impact is poised to be reinforced to support the expansion of the impact investing market.

The recent proposals by the European Commission on revising the classification of sustainable funds (SFDR) include a new category focused on impact. In the UK, the FCA uses impact as a criterion to define one of the categories of sustainable funds (sustainable impact funds).
