Navigating EU Disclosure & Reporting Initiatives II

Private capital flows are essential if the EU is to meet its net zero emissions targets by 2050. The EU created the EU Taxonomy for Sustainable Activities to make it easier for market stakeholders to know what ‘sustainable’ means, so they can allocate capital to sustainable activities. The Taxonomy sits at the heart of the EU Green Deal. There are several regulations supporting the Taxonomy, including the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation, the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive, the Green Bond Standard, and the Green Asset Ratio to name a few.
