The EU Taxonomy is a set of regulations adopted by the European Commission, in order to promote environmentally sustainable economic activities. These regulations are intended to direct capital flows to the development of environmentally sustainable economic activities, meaning – investments in the “Green Economy”.

Within the framework of the EU Taxonomy, the European Commission determines which economic activities will meet the given standards of ecology and social economy – as environmentally sustainable – in the future.

The EU Taxonomy includes four criteria which economic entities must meet

1. A minimum of one of the six goals of the EU Taxonomy must be achieved in the activities of the company.

2. The subjects’ social function is to provide employees with social standards.

3. The economic and social activity of the company must comply with the requirements set out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

4. Companies must invest in the development of means and technologies necessary to achieve the 6 EU taxonomy goals.

The criteria, goals, and regulations for the implementation of EU Taxonomy are currently being harmonized in the national legislative fields of the countries of the European Union. 

The ambitious goal of the EU Taxonomy is to provide a common language and classification system for sustainable activities, which will help investors, companies and other stakeholders to identify and invest in environmentally sustainable projects. 

It aims to provide a technical screening criteria for environmentally sustainable economic activities and will serve as a basis for EU regulations and policies on sustainable finance. Therefore, it will help to ensure that investments are directed towards activities that contribute to the transition of a low-carbon and climate resilient economy.

How to assess a company’s compliance with the EU Taxonomy standards?

One way to assess a company’s compliance with the EU Taxonomy standards is to review the company’s financial and sustainability reports. This way, it can be checked if they included information on how their activities align with the Taxonomy’s technical screening criteria. Companies may also have their compliance independently verified by a third party. Additionally, the EU has established a taxonomy registry, which allows companies to self-declare their compliance with the Taxonomy and allows investors and other stakeholders to review this information.
