Panel discussion 2: Sustainable finance taxonomy for Nature-based Solutions – What should we expect from new and upcoming finance regulations for sustainable land use?

Private companies are making record investments in sustainable projects. But how do we know if an investment is truly sustainable? Policymakers in the EU, China, Southeast Asia and elsewhere are developing taxonomies to distinguish between sustainable and unsustainable activities.

In this session, we discuss the next steps for the EU’s green taxonomy, the opportunities and challenges of creating taxonomy and disclosure regulations, and the potential of other mechanisms to ensure sustainable supply chains and more investments in nature-based solutions.
