Training programmes on the EU Taxonomy

The EU Taxonomy is a key building block of sustainable finance in Europe. It aims identify environmentally sustainable economic activities. Disclosure regulations and demand for sustainable products create the need for financial institutions to understand and operationalise the EU Taxonomy.

Frankfurt School of Finance & Management and ELS Europe have teamed up to provide the trainings to get your organisation ready for the EU Taxonomy. The experienced trainers have an in-depth understanding of the EU Taxonomy thanks to their participation in the European Commission’s Platform on Sustainable Finance and the European Commission’s Technical Expert Group on Sustainable Finance (TEG).
