Abstract: The introduction of the taxonomy will alter trade patterns and trade specialisation, in spite of the signs that EU members are specialised in industries and economic activities that are favoured by its introduction. The taxonomy is likely to further work not only directly but also through supply chains, as obtaining more attractive funding for companies is indirectly linked to the compliance of the company’s suppliers as well. However, managing the transition to green production will require further policy measures at the regional, national, and international levels. Given that several policy measures and initiatives are already in place, doubts can be raised as to whether the green transition can be achieved efficiently by the introduction of the taxonomy.
