Sustainability is the future! Large business increasingly recognise and commit to apply this lens throughout their whole operations; and tax cannot be an exception. In the recent years, different stakeholders have expressed different views as to what sustainable tax entails and how it can be measured.
The EBTF will commission an academic institution to produce an independent report that will aim at answering inter alia the following questions:
- What are the minimum key parameters comprising a sustainable tax behavior? Are there already best practices that could be used as a source of inspiration for large business?
- How to achieve sustainable tax in a measurable way? What could be qualitative and quantitative metrics to measure the effectiveness of large business sustainable practices?
External stakeholder perspective on “Sustainability & Tax”: During the final phase of the project, we will cordially invite external stakeholders to share their perception on the relationship of ‘Sustainability & Tax’, by filling in a simple questionnaire in English language. You are welcome to participate if you are a government or non-government standard setter, (institutional) investor, rating agency, NGO, media outlet, worker union, student or a part of society at large. Watch out this space for more developments on this project.
