Webinar Invitation: Introduction to the EU Taxonomy of Sustainable Finance: Thursday 26th March, 15:00 CET (14:00 GMT)

Join TEG members Nathan Fabian from PRI, Helena Viñes Fiestas from BNP Paribas AM and Sean Kidney having a conversation on the basics:

  • Who will be affected by the new EU Taxonomy?
  • What are the implications for investment in electricity, transport, buildings, etc?
  • Is it wishful thinking or is it practical?
  • Can the Taxonomy serve as the framework for post-virus stimulus packages?

Radio talk show format plus Q&A.

To be followed by seven "Deep-Dive Webinars" over the following weeks, April to May, where you’ll be able to have your detailed questions answered.

Talking Taxonomy Impacts

The launch of EU Taxonomy marks a foundational change in how institutional investors, asset managers and corporates will assess and determine low carbon investment directions, climate risk and new opportunities.

The Taxonomy has implications far wider than the EU and will gradually influence regulatory standards, regional guidelines and investor behaviour in multiple jurisdictions.

In the first of a new series of online presentations, Sean Kidney invites TEG Taxonomy Rapporteur, Nathan Fabian and Taxonomy Usability Lead, Helena Viñes Fiestas to have an in-depth discussion and take your questions.
