VMR Webinar on Ceta: Threat or Blessing to Enviornment&Energy?

Friday 23 April 2021 10-12am CET

CETA has been heralded as a gold standard for new EU trade agreements. Others characterise CETA as greenwashing, notably because its sustainable development provisions cannot be enforced, and because its investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS/ICS) provisions can hinder public policy measures on climate change and other issues of the European Union, its member states and Canada. Experts will discuss and inform about these different aspects of CETA. Please find further information and register here.
