The European Union’s Taxonomy Regulation, which provides a common classification framework for defining the environmental sustainability of business activity, is intended to help promote ‘green’ investment and help the EU to accelerate its transition to a sustainable economy. In practice, it has created a set of formidable challenges for companies, banks and the broader investment community on how to identify, align and report their activities.
In this podcast, Shruti Ajitsaria, partner and head of Fuse, A&O’s tech innovation space, is joined by Matt Townsend, partner and co-head of A&O’s global environment and climate law group, Elizabeth Gillam, head of EU government relations and public policy at Invesco, and Alexander Stevens, CEO of Greenomy, to discuss the goals and scope of the EU’s Taxonomy Regulation, its reporting requirements and the practical issues that organisations should consider.
