Climate change and taxes: potential high impact to consider


Climate change will have a major effect also on your taxes. All over the world, governments are responding to the increasing urgency of change with strict laws and measures. An illustrative example is the Fit for 55 Package, presented by the European Commission on 14 July 2021. A 12,000 page legislative proposal aiming to reduce domestic net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55 percent by 2030 and to pave the way to become the world's first climate-neutral continent by 2050.

This ESG animation gives you a taste of the potential impact of these changes on your business, your strategy, your workforce, so basically on your entire company. In this animation we see a company that is highly impacted by climate change through the energy transition and related measures and international agreements. Not all aspects may be relevant for your company, but we are convinced that some will have an impact. So do watch this opening animation and feel free to contact us to discuss your approach.
