In the framework of the hearing of the Finance Committee of the German Bundestag, Deutsches Aktieninstitut commented on Sustainable Finance. The complexity of the planned taxonomy specifications will present companies in the financial and real economy with major challenges. Under no circumstances can the result of the taxonomy be that entire branches of industry are cut off from financing by exclusion or excessively strict requirements. The Deutsche Aktieninstitut therefore rejects the taxonomy in its currently discussed form.
