A social taxonomy for sustainable investment - challenges and opportunities

Social taxonomy: challenges and opportunities

The EU´s Taxonomy Regulation establishes a framework to facilitate sustainable investment. According to the EESC, the EU taxonomy should be aligned with a holistic approach including environmental as well as social sustainability. An operationally viable and conceptually sound EU taxonomy would help to meet the urgent investment needs in the social field by channelling investments in that direction. With this hearing, the EESC wants to shed light on the idea of a social taxonomy, with the objective of stimulating the debate and come up with concrete suggestions. Conclusions will feed into an EESC own initiative opinion, currently in the drafting stage.

The event is organised on 21 June 2022, starting at 10:00 and is accessible via webstream. No registration is needed.
