EU Green Deal push(back)

EU parliamentary elections in June are fast approaching and the decibels of debate surrounding the Green Deal legislation are rising. Certain investors have suggested that a shift in political attention away from the Green Deal and that recent pushback and watering down of some regulation, in particular around the Nature Restoration Law, the Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDD), and the EU Deforestation Law, is negative for climate action in Europe.

Ehsan Khoman, Head of Research – Commodities, ESG and Emerging Markets (EMEA), discusses this shift in focus and whether this is a reflection of a broader ESG pushback, or whether a shift in narrative mindset is warranted to ensure a successful implementation post June’s EU parliamentary elections.
