Extending the Sustainable Funds Regime: Consultation Paper on Natural Capital Fund Rules

Closes 4 Jul 2022

Opened 5 May 2022

Overview

Background

This consultation paper proposes the creation of new fund rules providing for the voluntary application for designation by the Commission of registered or authorised collective investment schemes as Natural Capital Funds. Designation would be available to funds committed to making a nature-positive investment, setting and monitoring appropriate targets, and making relevant disclosures. Nature-positive investments are those with an objective to contribute positively to and/or significantly reduce the harm done to the natural world, including through transitional strategies.

The draft Natural Capital Fund Rules, which include guidance, are attached to this Consultation Paper at Appendix 1. The Commission welcomes feedback and comments on the draft rules and the proposals as set out in this Consultation Paper.
