EU Taxonomy – Green Shades into Your Portfolio or
a Pass to EU Recovery Package

The meeting will be held via Cisco WebEx

Registered members will receive login instructions and an access link 24 hours before the meeting.

EU Sustainable Finance Taxonomy has been designed to direct finance to sustainable investments and ensure the transition to a climate-neutral, resilient, and resource-efficient economy. COVID-19 pandemic shifted the focus of the European Commission (EC) and the national governments to the social and economic crises but the recovery process has been seen by EC as an opportunity to rebuild a greener, more digital and more resilient Europe. In order to achieve that the EC has created the “largest stimulus package ever” consisted of the EU’s long-term budget and the recovery instrument NextGenerationEU. A total of EUR 1.8 trillion will help the EU to repair the immediate economic and social damage and lay the foundations for a modern and more sustainable Europe in the context of the Green Deal.

What is the role of the Taxonomy in the recovery process? How it will affect the decisions of the governments, the investors, and the companies?  Is it going to accelerate the financing of green activities? Or it will only bring an administrative burden for companies and investors?

AmCham members will gain an insight into this topic from our guest speakers:

  • Mrs. Hristina Pendicheva, Financial Markets Regulation Directorate, Ministry of Finance 
  • Mr. Boyan Rashev, Managing Partner, denkstatt.
