New partnership conducts research on the social impacts of the EU legislative proposals in the ‘Fit for 55’ package
Laudes Foundation has partnered with the Institute for European Environmental Policy (IEEP) to conduct research on the social impacts of the EU legislative proposals in the ‘Fit for 55’ package (see details of the RfP here).
In this research project, IEEP will be supported by three members of the Think Sustainable Europe network of sustainability thinktanks – the Association for International Affairs (AMO) in Czechia, the Institute for Sustainable and International Relations (IDDRI) in France and EnergiaKlub in Hungary – as well as the European Anti-Poverty Network (EAPN).
The aim of this work is to gain a deeper understanding of the social impacts of the proposals, the views of different EU stakeholders and opportunities for potential influence.
An initial evidence review will inform recommendations for addressing social impacts in the ‘Fit for 55’ package. This will be presented in an analytic paper, which we will share with the broader community. If you have any questions about the research. or are working on similar topics. please contact Laudes Foundation via laudesfoundation.org/contact or Tim Gore at IEEP (email@example.com).
This project complements another partnership between Laudes Foundation and IEEP focused on fair and green tax reform in Europe, including assessing the distributional impacts of the proposed reform of the Energy Taxation Directive and extension of the Emissions Trading Scheme to building and transport.
