EcoActive ESG for EU Taxonomy

Simplify Your EU Taxonomy Compliance Journey with EcoActive ESG. Navigate the complexities of the EU Taxonomy effortlessly.

The EU Taxonomy Challenge

The EU Taxonomy regulation is a significant initiative by the European Union to standardize and elevate the criteria for sustainable economic activities. This regulation, part of the broader Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR), aims to ensure a consistent definition of what constitutes a “green” or “sustainable” economic activity. Set to take full effect in 2024, the EU Taxonomy is essential for promoting transparency, facilitating sustainable investments, and driving the transition toward a climate-neutral economy by 2050.

However, the EU Taxonomy introduces a complex array of challenges for businesses. Companies must now classify their economic activities according to stringent criteria that cover environmental objectives such as climate change mitigation, circular economy, and biodiversity protection. This requires collecting extensive data, interpreting it against the Taxonomy’s technical screening criteria, and integrating sustainability reporting with financial reporting. For many, this entails overhauling existing systems and processes and addressing new compliance and reporting requirements.

Sustainable finance aims to reorient investment towards environmentally friendly economic activities, an essential part of the European Green Deal. Major private investments are needed to make our financial system sustainable and ensure Europe is climate-neutral by 2050, as public investment alone will not be sufficient to reach these goals. The EU Taxonomy, as a science-based transparency tool for companies and investors, seeks to avoid greenwashing and drive investments toward sustainable transitions.

The Taxonomy regulation also includes a Complementary Climate Delegated Act that defines technical screening criteria for certain gas and nuclear activities as transitional activities to facilitate the transition away from more harmful energy sources, like coal, towards a mostly renewables-based future. Strict conditions apply to these activities, ensuring they meet specific emission thresholds and sustainability standards.

The EU Taxonomy regulation creates a clear framework for the concept of sustainability, precisely defining when a company or enterprise is operating sustainably or environmentally friendly. Companies that meet these standards stand out positively compared to their competitors and should benefit from higher investments. The legislation aims to reward and promote environmentally friendly business practices and technologies.

To be classified as a sustainable economic activity according to the EU Taxonomy regulation, a company must not only contribute to at least one environmental objective but also must not violate the remaining ones. An activity aiming to mitigate climate change but simultaneously negatively affecting biodiversity cannot be classified as sustainable.

The classification of an economic activity in terms of sustainability is based on four criteria,
which are derived from the previously mentioned environmental objectives


1. Contribution to Environmental

Objectives: The economic activity must contribute to one of the six environmental objectives.

2. Do No Significant Harm (DNSH):

The economic activity must not significantly harm any of the other environmental objectives.

3. Minimum Safeguards:

The economic activity must meet minimum safeguards such as the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights to avoid negative social impacts.

4. Technical Screening Criteria:

The economic activity must comply with the technical screening criteria developed by the EU Technical Expert Group. These criteria refer to technical solutions for emission reduction and are based on the latest scientific and technical knowledge.

In April 2021, the first details for the two environmental objectives of climate change mitigation and adaptation were released. Detailed information for the four remaining environmental objectives is expected to be updated regularly to reflect the current technological state of the art.

The EU Taxonomy thus serves as a comprehensive and dynamic tool that supports the transition towards a more sustainable and climate-resilient economy by providing clear and actionable guidelines for classifying and reporting sustainable economic activities.

What is the EU Taxonomy?

A transparency tool based on a classification system translating the EU’s climate and environmental objectives into criteria for specific economic activities for private investment purposes.
Not a mandatory requirement on environmental performance for companies or for financial products.
Not a mandatory list of economic activities for investors to invest in.
Not a mandatory requirement for public investment.

The Taxonomy is built on solid scientific foundations:

The EU Taxonomy aims to accelerate sustainable investments and create a common language for defining what is ‘sustainable’, helping to protect private investors from greenwashing, and mitigating market fragmentation.
