This call for feedback is part of ongoing work by the Platform on sustainable finance, which was set up by the Commission to provide advice on the further development of the EU taxonomy.
The draft report focuses primarily on presenting a first set of priority economic activities and draft recommendations for associated substantial contribution and do no significant harm (DNSH) technical screening criteria in relation to the 4 non-climate environmental objectives covering water, circular economy, pollution prevention, and biodiversity & ecosystems. However, a small number of economic activities and corresponding draft recommendations for technical screening criteria related to the climate mitigation and adaptation objectives have also been included.
The purpose of this call for feedback by the Platform is to gather further evidence and feedback on the proposed draft recommendations for technical screening criteria. The draft criteria presented in the report are working documents of the Platform and do not represent a final view of the Platform. They are presented to gather feedback and evidence from a wider set of stakeholders, to improve the draft criteria and make them more robust and usable in view of the final report to be presented to the European Commission in November 2021.
The Platform will welcome stakeholder feedback through the present call for feedback, which runs from 3 August to 24 September 2021.
