Fifty shades of green: sustainable finance and the EU taxonomy

How do we classify which investments are the right ones to power the transition to a climate and nature-friendly economy? This is a pretty big question, and one that is crucial to a successful implementation of the European Green Deal. The EU taxonomy – the subject of our latest episode - specifies the various criteria that investments will need to fulfill to be considered sustainable. In practice, the taxonomy is a long list of economic activities with benchmark performance standards.

Green Deal - Big Deal?

The podcast discussing Europe's Green Future

Ursula von der Leyen, the President of the European Commission, described the European Green Deal as Europe's "man on the moon" moment. With this plan, the European Union aims to achieve climate neutrality by 2050, protect and enhance nature, and sustainably transform the European economy and society.

But what exactly is the European Green Deal? How will it change our everyday life? And what challenges does it pose?


In our podcast and webinar series "Green deal – Big Deal?" we take a critical look at these questions and discuss various aspects of the European Green Deal with experts from policy, business and science.
