Overview

Taxonomies are a key component of the global effort to arrest climate change, protect the environment, and achieve social betterment. Jurisdictions around the world, including the European Union, are drafting taxonomies as part of their efforts to achieve net-zero and other environmental, social, and governance (ESG) targets.
