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?
The work is currently ongoing, and we expect to be able to report more at the beginning of 2022. Stay tuned for more developments on this project!
