EU taxonomy and other regulations on sustainable finance: implications and outlook for financial players

The paper is the result of a working group promoted by ItaSIF among its members to create an opportunity for discussing and sharing experiences, good practices and the criticalities found in the practical implementation of the EU Regulation 2020/852 on the taxonomy of environmentally sustainable economic activities.

The analysis highlighted the potential of taxonomy as a useful tool to finance the transition. In addition, some aspects to improve within its scope of application were investigated: the availability of clear and consistent data on the sustainability of businesses; the accessibility of information for consultants and investors on sustainable financial products.
