EU Taxonomy: Learnings so far on-demand webinar | 5 October 2021

The EU Taxonomy Regulation is developing rapidly. As part of the European Commission’s Sustainable Finance Action Plan, it is intended to help direct capital towards sustainable activities. And although further details have been released, significant debate on the implementation of the Regulation continues.

In KPMG’s first EU Taxonomy webinar we covered what the EU Taxonomy Regulation means for corporates and what first steps to take. Now that the first deadline of Q1 2022 is approaching, we shared lessons learned and challenges faced by corporates during implementation. 

In this webinar we covered:

  • How can you determine the eligibility and alignment of your activities?
  • How to understand and apply the EU definitions of Capex, Opex and turnover? What to include in Opex?
  • How do you deal with challenges in data collection and robustness of your reporting process?
  • How can the EU Taxonomy Disclosures be integrated into your broader ESG strategy and reporting narrative?

EU Taxonomy for corporates on-demand webinar | 16 December 2021

As corporates are getting ready to report their first EU Taxonomy disclosures in Q1 2022, how to apply (aspects of) the regulation is subject to debate.

Now that the Annual reports are being prepared, new questions arise. For example; how to collect eligibility KPIs? How to create a comprehensive narrative that provides the right context? How will the auditor look at the disclosures and the underlying documentation? And; what further guidance and interpretation of the regulation will be provided, and when?

In this webinar we talked through the latest developments and shared best practices on various topics: from mapping eligibility to providing a compelling narrative.

In this webinar we covered:

  • What are the latest developments (since the previous webinar in October)?
  • What are current best practices when it comes to determining eligibility, and disclosure?
  • The auditor's view: how will the auditor look at the disclosure?
