9th June 2022

Dublin, 9 June 2022 – The technology-driven law firm and compliance provider, Zeidler Group, expands its ESG Services Division as it launches its Global Knowledge Hub – Sustainable Finance module today through its digital platform, Zeidler Swift.  

Global Knowledge Hub (GKH) – Sustainable Finance was specifically developed by Zeidler Group’s team of sustainable finance specialist lawyers to meet the demand for practical guidance on both international and national level sustainable finance regulations and disclosure and reporting obligations.  

The digital solution acts as a resource for asset managers and investment funds (UCITS and AIFs) outlining practical information via a user-friendly dashboard to ensure compliance with the latest ESG and sustainable finance legal and regulatory requirements and obligations. 

Zeidler Group’s GKH module is led by Sarah Noville, Senior Associate. It provides practical legal information for asset managers and investment funds (UCITS and AIFs) covering over 70 jurisdictions.  

The sustainable finance edition of GKH is modelled on the existing GKH interface but focuses specifically on ESG related regulatory compliance, disclosure, and reporting requirements for UCITS and AIFs. GKH – Sustainable Finance is managed by both Elisa Forletta-Fehrenberg, Head of ESG Services Division, and Ms Noville and is the newest technology solution launched by the ESG Services Division since its inception in May 2022.  

Key features of the GKH – Sustainable Finance module include:   

  • Practical information on disclosure requirements relating to articles 6, 8 and 9 of SFDR and articles 5, 6 and 7 of the Taxonomy Regulation
