Following the obligation under Regulation (EU) 2020/852 of the Parliament and of the Council of 18 June 2020, as set out in Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2021/2178, an analysis of the share of eligible and non-eligible business activities in the EU Taxonomy of environmentally sustainable activities in the total turnover, capital expenditure and operating expenditure of the Unibep Group has been carried out for the purposes of this Report and adequate qualitative information has been provided insofar as it relates to the above indicators for the financial year 2021. At the same time, the presented indicators refer to the taxonomy related to climate change mitigation and adaptation.
For the purposes of this Report, alignment with the taxonomy is not disclosed.
With regard to the indicators presented, the Group does not have comparative data for 2020. The Group has not yet developed or implemented the plan referred to in paragraph 22.214.171.124 of Annex 1 of Commission Delegated Regulation EU 2021/2178 of 6 July 2021, supplementing Regulation 2020/852 by specifying the content of the presentation of the information on environmentally sustainable business activities to be disclosed by companies subject to Article 19a or 29a of Directive 2013/34/EU and the method for fulfilling this disclosure obligation (Regulation 2178).
In the case of capital expenditure, the Group assessed whether and to what extent the assets would be used to carry out activities previously classified under the EU non-financial Taxonomy. In addition, the Group has also classified into the Taxonomy investments directly related to the description of the activities included in the Taxonomy – in particular activity 6.5. Transport by motorbikes, passenger cars and light commercial vehicles.
For operating expenditure, the Group assessed in particular whether and to what extent the operating expenditure directly relates to an activity or asset previously classified in the Taxonomy or to a process related to it.
In the case of items that could simultaneously be eligible for at least two activities, the Company avoided double counting of a given item (activity/sales, capital expenditure or operating expenditure, respectively) by excluding given items verified for the first time and classified in the numerator of a given indicator from further calculations.
At the same time, the Issuer explains that in view of the non-uniform interpretation of the Taxonomy regulations, the lack of guidelines and consistent practice including, in particular, with regard to the calculation of capital expenditure and operating expenditure for 2021, the presented results of the analysis may be subject to adjustments in subsequent reporting periods.
The Group’s core operating activities consist in the implementation of construction projects covering various sectors within the construction business (residential and commercial construction, road infrastructure, railway infrastructure and modular construction) as well as property development activity.
