Stronger together: Exploring the EU Taxonomy as a Tool for Transition Planning

EU Taxonomy December 5, 2023 CDP and Clarity AI

CDP and Clarity AI analyze how the EU Taxonomy KPIs relate to the real economy transition

In 2023, the full disclosure of EU Taxonomy metrics in annual reports became mandatory for companies subject to the EU’s Non-Financial Reporting Directive (NFRD). Europe was the first region to make taxonomy disclosures mandatory for over 2,000 companies. This has resulted in a substantial amount of new sustainability-related data being made available to the market. However, it is not yet clear how to interpret and utilize this data for decision-making, including within sustainable finance.

In this report, the first to compare EU Taxonomy KPIs to existing indicators linked to corporate transition, we analyze data from over 1,700 companies. The results reveal that average numbers of eligibility and alignment hide significant variations across and within sectors, both for revenues and capital expenditures.

Additionally, the levels of detail provided by companies and their compliance with the official reporting templates vary, suggesting the need for further guidance and improvements in the quality of reported Taxonomy data.
