 Subject:  EU taxonomy — disclosure of sustainability characteristics

In the light of Parliament’s report on the proposed taxonomy for sustainable activities published as part of the sustainable finance package, we think it is essential that issuers of bonds, stocks and other assets provide sufficient, standardised and easily available information to enable insurers to make use of the taxonomy.

Has the Commission planned to introduce standardised ways for asset issuers to disclose their sustainability data, since the onerous task of compiling it will surely deter them from using the taxonomy on a voluntary basis?

Does it believe that the burden of gathering information that might not be publicly available should lie with the insurer?
