Ruben Silva Kas is working on a dissertation with the working title 'De civielrechtelijke handhaving van de transparantieverplichtingen uit de Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR)'.

The Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) has created harmonised public law disclosure requirements regarding sustainability in the financial sector. The SFDR is silent on the civil law consequences of a breach of the regulation and leaves these consequences to the national private law of Member States. Against the backdrop of the Union law principle of effectiveness, the issue of bottlenecks in Dutch private law in investor enforcement of the SFDR is being examined. At this stage, it is expected that private law changes will be necessary to a certain extent, but caution should be exercised in doing so.
