Overview

In Europe, the Sustainable Finance Strategy, including the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR), came into effect in March 2021. In the US, the regulatory response is lagging but the Securities and Exchange Commission has made noise about its interest in pushing ESG into the investment community. LPs and asset owners are influenced by the regulatory push and are actively asking questions around ESG but issues with American LPs remain.

Key learning objectives:

  • Identify the different stakeholders in venture capital

  • Identify which stakeholders are pushing and slowing ESG progress

  • Understand how this differs between Europe and the US
