Taxonomy allows to identify sustainable economic activities that can fulfil the net-zero emission target by 2050.
Aligning their business model with the European taxonomy, companies will access private investments supporting their decarbonisation and therefore accelerating their net-zero transition.

Taxonomy alignment criteria

Taxonomy defines sustainable economic activities based on six environmental and climate objectives:

  • Climate change mitigation;​
  • Climate change adaptation;​
  • Sustainable use and protection of water and marine resources;​
  • Transition to a circular economy, including waste reduction and recycling;​
  • Pollution prevention and control;​
  • Protection and restoration of biodiversity and ecosystems.

Aligned activities meet the following criteria:

  • Making a substantial contribution to at least one of the six above mentioned objectives;
  • Doing no significant harm to any other of the above mentioned objectives;
  • Complying with minimum social safeguards.
