Joint statement for ‘A Taxonomy Delivering Sustainable Growth in Europe’

Together with 14 other signatories, we have published the joint statement for 'A Taxonomy Delivering Sustainable Growth in Europe'.

In includes 6 key principles the Sustainable Investment Regulation and derived Taxonomy should apply:

  • The future Taxonomy should help implement the adopted EU legislation
  • The future Taxonomy’s criteria and thresholds should be impact assessed prior to their application
  • The future Taxonomy’s criteria and thresholds should also be developed and assessed by EU Member States and stakeholders. This should be done before they start applying
  • The future Taxonomy should be technology neutral and lead to investment in innovation, infrastructure and solutions that help achieve the EU goals cost-effectively
  • The future Taxonomy should adopt a transitional, evidence-based and pragmatic approach
  • The future Taxonomy should better tackle environmental sustainability but also the social and economic pillars of sustainability
