Taxonomy CDA: Implications on financial markets and the role of fossil gas in EU green transition

Co-organiser: Climate Bonds Initiative

Date: 9:00-10:30 Tuesday, 24th May

The very Regulation meant to boost investments for renewable and low carbon technologies now potentially risks slowing down their widespread rapid deployment. Investments are likely to divert towards fossil gas, arguably coming with fewer risks to investors than many low carbon solutions. The Taxonomy CDA seem to have been side-tracked from its original ambition: to be the gold standard for sustainable investments. Come join us for a discussion on the initial aim of the Taxonomy Regulation and the implications of the CDA on the financial markets and the role of fossil gas in the green transition.
