On 9 March 2020, the Technical Expert Group on Sustainable Finance published its final reports on an EU taxonomy (including technical annex) as well as further user guidance in relation to its recommendations for an EU green bonds. To accompany these reports and provide a venue for an open exchange with stakeholders, the European Commission organised a stakeholder dialogue on 12 March 2020.
The meeting also provided an opportunity for stakeholders to discuss and express ideas on the upcoming renewed sustainable finance strategy, which was announced in the European Commission’s Communication on the European Green Deal.
In addition, the TEG has prepared excel tools to help users of the taxonomy to implement it in their own activities.
To advance the work on sustainable finance, the European Commission set up a Technical Expert Group on Sustainable Finance (TEG) in June 2018. The role of the TEG has been to assist the Commission in the development of a unified classification system for sustainable economic activities ('EU taxonomy'), an EU Green Bond Standard, methodologies for climate benchmarks, and guidelines for climate-related disclosure by companies. This event focuses on the final report in relation to the EU Taxonomy and an EU Green Bond Standard.
