Business briefing: The EU Taxonomy on sustainable activities

In order to inform its work on the action plan: financing sustainable growth under the EU Green Deal, the European Commission established a Technical Expert Group (TEG) on sustainable finance. Action 1 of the action plan called for the establishment of an EU classification system for sustainable activities, i.e. an EU taxonomy. On 9 March 2020, the TEG published its final report on EU taxonomy.

This business briefing is designed to give WBCSD members a high-level understanding of what the Taxonomy is, how it might affect them and where to find the latest tools and resources.

For an applied example of how the Taxonomy works in practice, have a look at Acciona’s EU Taxonomy Case Study, which outlines sustainable economic activities across their operations that significantly contribute to the low carbon transition.
