The European Commission intends to launch a negotiated call for tender for technical assistance in developing criteria on agricultural activities to be included in the EU Sustainable Finance Taxonomy.
The development of an EU Sustainable Finance Taxonomy is one of the tasks of Technical Expert Group (TEG) on Sustainable Finance set up by the European Commission. Developing the Taxonomy entails identifying and defining environmentally sustainable economic activities based on objective criteria.
The purpose of the tender is to assist the TEG by providing it with options for such objective criteria in the agricultural sector (other than forestry).
In particular, given the current focus of the TEG on climate change, the criteria should enable the identification of activities that (i) substantially contribute to climate change mitigation and (ii) do not substantially harm any of the other environmental objectives (as listed in the Taxonomy proposal, relating to climate change adaptation, water resources, pollution prevention and control, circular economy and ecosystems) while ensuring that the assessment by the contractor is in line with existing EU policies and objectives in the field of agriculture.
Interested economic operators should send their manifestation of interest to participate and their details, by 6 November at the latest, to the email@example.com.
Please note: this overview is for information only. If you are interested in participating in a DG FISMA negotiated procedure for low or middle value contracts, you may email your details to firstname.lastname@example.org with a reference to the call for tenders you are interested in.
Your details will be stored in a database for the purpose of tendering only. Inclusion of your contact details does not automatically lead to invitations to tender.
