2023 was the first year in which issuers (non-financial companies) were required or voluntarily disclosed, in accordance with the requirements set out in Article 8 of the Taxonomy Regulation, how and to what extent the undertaking’s activities are associated with economic activities that qualify as environmentally sustainable.
