The European Green Taxonomy and how it impacts your supply chains

The first part of the European Green Taxonomy "EU taxonomy for sustainable activities" is in application since 2022.

🧐 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝗶𝘁? The Green Taxonomy promotes the transition to "net zero" by standardizing the way companies communicate on their environmental impact, especially to their investors. The idea: to prevent greenwashing and orientate investments towards compliant and sustainable companies.

📅 𝗪𝗵𝗲𝗻? 2 qualitative and quantitative criteria are in application since January 2022: efforts to mitigate climate change and adaptability to these issues. Four others will follow in January 2023: sustainable use of water, transition to a circular economy, pollution control and prevention, and biodiversity protection.

🌿 𝗚𝗿𝗲𝗲𝗻𝘄𝗮𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘃𝘀. 𝘀𝘂𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗶𝗻𝗮𝗯𝗹𝗲 𝘀𝘂𝗽𝗽𝗹𝘆 𝗰𝗵𝗮𝗶𝗻 - The supply chain is a key factor of impact: art.8 of the law commits to more traceability and more accountability of actors in relation to their CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) statements. End-to-end traceability is one of the main keys to building a responsible supply system.

🎯 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗴𝗼𝗼𝗱 𝗻𝗲𝘄𝘀? New technologies exist today that facilitate the implementation of end-to-end traceability/visibility to achieve CSR objectives, by allowing the actors of a supply chain to exchange data between them in a simple, secure and transparent way, to link this information together for each product, each batch, and to restore it as required by regulations and authorities to demonstrate compliance
