Position Papers

With our position papers we engage in political debates and expert discussions regarding capital market issues - representing the interests of our members. Each year, numerous and detailed positions cover the various areas of our work: the primary market, the secondary market, the governance of listed companies and the economic education.

Below you will find our position papers which focus on European legislation - mostly in English and partially in German language. All our positions including papers with focus on national topics you will find on our German website.

The delegated acts on the EU taxonomy that the EU Commission has consulted will not help to make the taxonomy a milestone for the transition to a sustainable low-carbon economy. The technical screening criteria designed to identify which economic activities make a significant contribution to climate change mitigation and adaptation are too narrowly defined. The EU taxonomy's approach of positive classification of economic activities should not mean that economic activities that do not meet the EU taxonomy criteria are automatically considered unsustainable.
