EU Taxonomy and the European telecommunications sector

The European telecommunications sector is a major contributor to the fight against climate change. The sector is greening its own operations, and rolling out more energy-efficient, next generation networks, which play an important enabling role for smart solutions, thus reducing the environmental impact across other sectors of the economy and society.

The EU taxonomy is an important instrument to direct financing to green solutions and economic activities, which should recognise the pivotal function of electronic communications networks as an essential enabler of a greener economy.
