Call for evidence on the UK Green Taxonomy
The APPG on ESG is issuing a call for evidence on the UK Green Taxonomy to feed into a report on the taxonomy to be published before the end of the year.
The evidence session will consist of short presentations and Q&A in front of a panel led by the group’s chair, Alexander Stafford MP. Responses are welcome from stakeholders with a deep knowledge of Environmental, Social and Governance, in particular, the EU green taxonomy and the UK Government’s preparations to introduce a British taxonomy.
