Taxonomy and ESG

The group's main task will be to develop a substantive interpretation of taxonomy and to define specific aspects at national level. This will be the basis for establishing a broader consensus among stakeholders on specific rules for evaluating compliance with taxonomy requirements. The group's remit will be to link findings from the international scene with the requirements and ideas of market participants at national level. Using the European Regional Network of Green Building Councils, we will be able to bring experience from other countries and use it to create such a methodological guide. The aim is a common understanding, acceptance of a common approach and assessment criteria and simplification of the process for investors and for the banking sector.
