Trade The interests of people and the planet must be put before the interests of big business

11 April 2019

EU Member States in the European Council have today agreed to start negotiating a new EU-US trade deal.

The talks were de facto approved despite promises by French President Macron and EU Trade Commissioner Malmström that the EU would not negotiate a trade agreement with countries that have not signed the Paris agreement on climate change.

This Wednesday, 13th February, Members of the European Parliament will vote on a controversial investment deal between the EU and Singapore. This treaty is very similar to the investment chapters of CETA, the unpopular trade deal between the EU and Canada which outraged people all over Europe in 2015 and 2016.

The EU trade and investment policy benefits big business, at the expense of workers, consumers and our environment.

 

We urgently need a trade policy that puts sustainability at its heart and contributes to protecting our environment and climate.
