Jurisdictional inconsistencies in data and regulation throughout the global ESG market have signalled a need for a harmonisation of taxonomies. With the implementation of the China – EU Common Ground Taxonomy, there appears to be merits to harmonising complementary taxonomy systems.
By looking at the nuances between the EU and ASEAN Taxonomy and the ESG disclosure rules in the US, this panel explored how these taxonomies and disclosure rules can complement each other to potentially create a cohesive taxonomy system that can help nation states, financial institutions and corporates reach their ESG goals.
