[Region: EU] Regulation (EU) 2020/852 (the EU taxonomy of sustainable economic activities) sets disclosure requirements for certain financial market participants and undertakings. This briefing provides an overview of the EU taxonomy, including a proposed delegated act on gas and nuclear energy.
The PRI plays an important role in the development of the EU taxonomy. Working as a contributor to the High-Level Expert Group on sustainable finance and a member of the Technical Expert Group (TEG) on sustainable finance, the PRI helped shape the course of the Taxonomy regulation and TSC.
The opportunity to provide expert advice on behalf of our signatories and in support of scientific expertise continues with the PRI’s Chief Responsible Investment Officer, Nathan Fabian also working as Chair to the European Platform on Sustainable Finance (PSF).
