End of 2019 the EU agreed upon a regulation on the establishment of a framework to facilitate sustainable investment commonly called the EU taxonomy regulation (2020/852). EU Taxonomy is a new instrument, expected to play an important role in helping the EU scale up sustainable investment and implement the European green deal.
Companies in the scope of the EU taxonomy need to disclose information on what % of their CapEx, OpEx and TurnOver are ‘eligible’ already this year 2022. Those companies with eligible activities will need to disclose in 2023 their % of CapEx, OpEx and TurnOver that are aligned with the EU taxonomy.
You want to learn what taxonomy means for your company? How to implement it? What effects it might have on your business? And how it might play an important role in steering transition(s)?
essenscia warmly encourages you to get acquainted with what this regulation is about, and how it could affect (future) investments. When the EU Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive will enter into force, even more companies will fall under the EU taxonomy disclosure obligations. So, start to prepare now. #IndustryInTransition
essenscia organizes on the 4th of October afternoon an informative session on EU taxonomy tailored to the chemical, life sciences and plastics industry.
We propose the training in English and physically to increase interactions and networking amongst participants (unless circumstances such as covid or participation exceeding the room’s capacity forces us to switch to hybrid or online). Practical information will be sent in due time upfront the workshop to the registered participants.
The target audience for the workshop is broad, ranging from environmental, sustainable, social, legal, marketing and financial profiles within your companies as use and implications of EU Taxonomy is potentially broad and needs involvement of several departments within one company.
