Practical Seminar on Bank Discussions: EU Taxonomy in Practice

Since the beginning of the year, the EU Taxonomy Regulation has been in effect, regulating the sustainable transformation of the economy. What does this mean specifically for companies, and what do business owners and executives need to prepare for in their financing discussions with their banks?

In the practical seminar on June 27, 2023, participants gained a practical overview of the requirements, including sustainability reporting, the available financing measures, and what the transition to a climate-neutral economy is all about.
