EUROFER contribution to the inception impact assessment on the EU taxonomy
The European Steel Association, EUROFER, welcomes the opportunity to contribute to the Commission’s Inception Impact Assessment on the EU Taxonomy for Sustainable Finance. On 9 March 2020, the EC Technical Expert Group on Sustainable Finance (TEG) published its final report on the taxonomy. Whilst there have been some improvements, the main concerns of the European steel industry still remain to be addressed.
The EUROFER | Engage newsletter will provide monthly updates from the association, consolidating all the news on our website.
