Keeping you in-the-know on environmental, social and governance developments

Eco-Business recently covered a landmark case about carbon emissions, renewable fuels and deforestation, where the World Trade Organization (WTO)

“… found fault with the way the European Union decided against accepting palm oil as a source of renewable energy.

Malaysia, the world’s second largest producer of palm oil after Indonesia, argued that the EU had violated international trade rules when it decided on a cap and phase-out designed to limit the use of palm oil as a biofuel under the bloc’s second version of its Renewable Energy Directive (RED II).”

WTO’s report is here. Given Malaysia’s win here, will there be further attacks on EU policies that are intended to advance climate solutions? It wouldn’t surprise me.
