Stakeholder Consultation for ASEAN Taxonomy for Sustainable Finance Version 3

Following the release of ASEAN Taxonomy for Sustainable Finance (ASEAN Taxonomy) Version 3 (Version 3), the ASEAN Taxonomy Board (ATB) is in the process of gathering feedback from stakeholders through a consultation process comprising small group discussions and interviews. Stakeholders include representatives from ASEAN ministries and government agencies, financial markets and economic sector participants, as well as other relevant regional and international stakeholders.

Stakeholders’ responses in this year’s Stakeholder Consultation process will be crucial in helping the ATB understand the needs and expectations of stakeholders as input to Version 3, as well as in developing the next version(s) of the ASEAN Taxonomy. The small group discussions and interviews will allow for more in-depth discussions. These sessions are by invitation only.

The ATB also welcomes feedback on Version 3 via written submission to atbconsultations@sfinstitute.asia. Please consider the following topics in your written submission:

  1. Applicability and usability of ASEAN Taxonomy.
  2. Application of ASEAN Taxonomy to facilitate your organisation’s transition plan.
  3. Achievability and credibility of the Technical Screening Criteria (TSC) for Construction & Real Estate and Transportation & Storage activities.
  4. Feedback on Grandfathering Rules and the clarification needed.
  5. Feedback on Do No Significant Harm (DNSH) assessment and the clarification needed.

Submissions will be opened until Friday, 30 August 2024. A maximum of one written submission per organisation is allowed for the Stakeholder Consultation exercise.

Stakeholders’ responses will only be published openly in aggregated form. However, all responses will be anonymised and it will not be attributed to specific individuals or organisations per Chatham House Rule (https://www.chathamhouse.org/about-us/chatham-house-rule).
