Vanda Cascão (Partner) and Manuel Gouveia Pereira (Managing Associate) write the article "New Requirements under the EU Taxonomy – Preparing the route ahead".

"The European Commission is committed to ensure that all Union actions and policy initiatives take the Sustainable Development Goals (“SDGs”) on board at the outset. The Taxonomy Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2020/852 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 June 2020) is a landmark for the achievement of the SDGs. 
The proposal for the Taxonomy Regulation was presented by the Commission in May 2018. It was published in the Official Journal in June 2020 and entered into force on July 12, 2020. It is a classification system for sustainable economic activities, a key piece of legislation that will contribute to the Green Deal by boosting investment in green and sustainable projects, a powerful tool for a climate neutral EU by 2050."
