On the occasion of the trilogue negotiations on the EU taxonomy, Deutsches Aktieninstitut expressed its concerns regarding the design of the taxonomy in a letter to the Permanent Representation of Germany to the European Union. Deutsches Aktieninstitut rejects the extension of the scope to all financial products as proposed in the compromise. If the scope is extended, entire branches of industry could be cut off from financing. The compromise proposal does not sufficiently take into account transformation processes and supply chains. Deutsches Aktieninstitut demands that the legislator tests the taxonomy specifications in practice to determine if they are suitable for use.
