Report on the EU Taxonomy objectives

In order to meet the EU’s climate and energy targets for 2030 and reach the objectives of the European green deal, the EU has created the EU Taxonomy.

The aim is to provide a tool to support in directing investments towards sustainable projects and activities. The taxonomy is a classification system, detailing what the EU constitutes as sustainable economic activities.

The taxonomy applies to listed and large public interest companies with more than 500 employees. Companies must report the share of revenue from taxonomy eligible activities, and the share of operating and capital expenditures. In EU’s first version of the taxonomy, sectors that are assessed to have the greatest impact on CO2 emissions - forestry, manufacturing, power generation, water and waste management, transportation, construction and real estate, and ICT (data centers - have been included. As a listed company Munters must report the taxonomy related KPIs as of 2021.

During 2021, Munters has performed an analysis in several steps to identify taxonomy-eligible economic activities. The analysis has classified 35% of the turnover, 37% of the operating expenditures and 49% of the capital expenditures as taxonomy eligible for the financial year 2021. The included business span five economic activities as defined in the EU Taxonomy and includes both business areas.

For more information see the Annual and Sustainability Report 2021 pages 50-53.

  • related to the purchase of output from taxonomy-aligned economic activities and individual measures enabling the target activities to become low-carbon or to lead to greenhouse gas reductions. Notably, activities listed in sections 7.3 to 7.6 of Annex I of the [Climate Delegated Act], as well as other economic activities listed in the delegated acts referred to in Articles 10(3), 11(3), 12(2), 13(2), 14(2), 15(2) of Regulation (EU) 2020/852 and provided that such measures are implemented and operational within 18 months.
