    Article

    Het verdrag in de huidige vormt een ernstige bedreiging voor milieu, publieke diensten, arbeidsnormen en de veiligheid van consumenten. Laatste verklaring van minister Ploumen is slechts een verheldering van datgene dat in de verdragstekst is afgesproken, maar verandert structureel niets en komt dus niet tegemoet aan fundamentele bezwaren.

  8. Canadese onderzoekers waarschuwen Europeanen voor handelsverdrag CETA

    Report
    Canadese onderzoekers waarschuwen in een vandaag uitgebracht onderzoek over de gevolgen van CETA, het voorgenomen handelsverdrag tussen de EU en Canada. Volgens de onderzoekers van de Council of Canadians zal het verdrag een negatief effect hebben op de voedselveiligheid in de EU. In Nederland zijn onderzoeksinstelling Transnational Institute (TNI) en voedselwaakhond foodwatch betrokken bij het onderzoek. Jurjen de Waal, campaigner bij foodwatch: 'In Canada gelden in veel gevallen lagere voedsel en dierenwelzijnsstandaarden. In Europa krijgen daardoor vooral kleinschaligere boeren te maken met de harde concurrentie van grote Canadese agribusinesses, terwijl consumenten slechter voedsel op hun bord krijgen.'

    Les accords de commerce et d’investissement sont un obstacle à la transition énergétique nécessaire à la lutte contre le changement climatique, car ils limitent la capacité des gouvernements de déterminer leurs politiques dans tous les domaines.

  13. Polluters’ Paradise

    07 December 2015
    Report

    Climate change action demands moving to an energy system based on renewables and leaving fossil fuels in the ground. International investment agreements, and particularly ISDS, stand in the way of energy transition. They limit the ability of governments to set the terms of their energy policy, including the support of renewable energy. Investment agreements such as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) will further empower corporations to challenge strong government action on climate change
