The taxonomy regulation empowers the Commission to adopt delegated and implementing acts to specify how competent authorities and market participants shall comply with the obligations laid down in the directive.

The Taxonomy Regulation tasks the Commission with establishing the actual list of environmentally sustainable activities by defining technical screening criteria for each environmental objective through delegated acts.

The Commission launched an IT tool on the EU taxonomy for sustainable activities (the ‘taxonomy compass’) that will facilitate the use of the taxonomy by allowing users to navigate easily through its contents.
