Here is a snippet from their website:
On 1 April 2022, Treasury launched South Africa’s first national Green Finance Taxonomy. Treasury describes, in a note on its website, that investors, issuers, lenders and other financial sector participants can use the taxonomy to track, monitor, and demonstrate the credentials of their green activities in a more confident and efficient way. This follows after extensive stakeholder consultation between July and November 2020 and a draft that was released in June 2021 for public comment and tested in six financial institutions.~ STBB ~
