What’s the Taxonomy?

The Climate Bonds Taxonomy identifies the assets and projects needed to deliver a low carbon economy and gives screening criteria consistent with the 2-degree global warming target set by the COP 21 Paris Agreement.

The new version been developed based on the latest climate science including research from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the International Energy Agency (IEA), and has benefited from the input of hundreds of technical experts from around the world.

The Climate Bonds Taxonomy can be used by any entity looking to identify which assets, activities and associated financial instruments, are compatible with a 2-degree trajectory.
