EU Taxonomy: Support for Your Sustainability Reporting 

The EU Taxonomy entering into force means that companies are faced with new sustainability reporting requirements. First Climate supports you to efficiently fulfill your reporting obligations in accordance with the EU Taxonomy and in uncovering the potential to successfully position

your company on the financial market.


The EU Taxonomy 
New Opportunities and Challenges for Companies

As part of the Green Deal to achieve its climate targets, the EU has set a decisive new course for the interaction between business and sustainability. The concept is based on two pillars - the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) and the EU Taxonomy. Both present new opportunities but also challenges for companies. Find out here how you can use First Climate's services to meet these challenges effectively and tap into the potential opportunities.

What is the EU Taxonomy?

The EU Taxonomy is part of the EU Sustainable Finance Action Plan, which aims to redirect long-term capital flows and promote financial activities considered sustainable according to the Taxonomy. It is a tool for determining the environmental performance of financial activities in a wide range of sectors, helping investors, business partners, issuers and project developers to navigate the path towards a low-carbon, resilient and resource-efficient economy.


As a direct consequence for companies, the EU Taxonomy creates new reporting obligations for sustainability. Companies must disclose the proportion of revenue, investments and operating expenses spent on measures and activities considered sustainable under the EU Taxonomy. The implementation of the EU Taxonomy requires the development of complex strategies involving a wide range of stakeholders.

Sound complicated? It doesn't have to be.
