EU Taxonomy

The EU Taxonomy Regulation is an important aspect of the EU Sustainable Finance Action Plan, designed to redirect capital towards sustainable investments, address financial risks associated with climate change, and enhance transparency in financial and economic operations.

Criteria for Eligibility

Economic activities eligible under the EU Taxonomy Regulation must meet specific criteria. They should substantially contribute to at least one of six climate and environmental objectives, avoid significant harm to other objectives, and adhere to minimum safeguards. There are three categories of eligible activities: those with their own performance, enabling activities, and transitional activities.

Classification System for Sustainability

This regulation establishes a classification system identifying economically sustainable activities that significantly contribute to the EU's climate and environmental goals.
