The EU taxonomy is a classification system, establishing a list of environmentally sustainable economic activities. The EU taxonomy is an important enabler to scale up sustainable investment and to implement the European Green Deal. A first delegated act on sustainable activities for climate change adaptation and mitigation objectives was published on 21 April 2021. A second delegated act for the remaining objectives will be published in 2022. The announcement of the first delegated act for adoption under the Taxonomy Regulation, delivering the first set of technical screening criteria is a welcome and critical step for the implementation of the EU Taxonomy.
Dialogue and close cooperation among a wide range of stakeholders from the public and private sector will be crucial to deliver on the aims of the EU Taxonomy Regulation and ultimately of the European Green Deal and the EU climate targets for 2030 and 2050.
The Platform on Sustainable Finance plays a key role in enabling such cooperation by bringing together the best expertise on sustainability from the corporate and public sector, from industry as well as academia, civil society and the financial industry join forces.
