The Independent Science
Based Taxonomy

Greenwashed investments expose businesses and investors to financial, legal and reputational risks. Our goal is to provide them with a science based assessment of environmental sustainability. This website hosts the Independent Science Based Taxonomy, a tool that rates the criteria of the official EU Taxonomy using three colour-coded categories and provides, where needed, alternative criteria. The ‘Independent Science Based Taxonomy’ intends to provide businesses, investors, banks and other stakeholders with a science based, evidenced assessment of environmental sustainability.
