ESG Regulation & Reporting - Part 4

Overview

The EU's Taxonomy Regulation created the world's first-ever regulatory-driven “green list” – a classification system for environmentally sustainable economic activities. It provides transparency to investors and other financial market actors such as banks, asset managers, and insurance companies by defining the criteria under which a financial product or activity can be described as environmentally sustainable. This eCourse provides an overview of the Taxonomy Regulation and its key provisions.
