Own-initiative opinion postponed to the autumn

The purpose of the opinion is to examine the extent to which existing EU company law currently serves as an "expedient" for the politically-desirable Green Deal and which gaps still need to be closed, in particular regarding corporate social responsibility obligations. The opinion will aim at following-up on the European Commission's initiative on due diligence and broadening the debate on sustainable corporate governance interlinking the social, environmental and economic dimensions.

The partial paradigm shift inspired by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) has already impacted economies, businesses and consumers. The time has come to scale up, using the common sustainable practices already being implemented as a basis for taking these sustainable practices to the next level.

The upcoming German EU Council Presidency has requested an EESC opinion on "Digitalisation and Sustainability – status quo and need for action in civil society perspective".

The Federal Environment Ministry (BMU) has decided to place special emphasis on the topic of digitalisation and sustainability during Germany’s upcoming European Council Presidency in the second half of 2020. The current crisis with increasing demand for teleworking, virtual conferences and digital services highlights the need for sustainable digitalisation even more.

The EESC opinion will establish the status quo and explore the need for action from a civil society perspective to help identify options for action at European level.

This additional opinion will complement and update the proposals made in the original 2020 Annual Sustainable Growth Strategy (ASGS) opinion, adopted in February this year, produced under time pressure and before the COVID-19 outbreak so it could not take into account recent developments.

The Semester exercise will be geared towards exiting the current crisis and the opinion is necessary for the EESC to make related proposals.  The additional opinion will be presented for the October 2020 Plenary, to provide a timely input to the Commission's preparation of the next ASGS expected again for November 2020. It will therefore target directly the next European Semester cycle at the right political and institutional moment.
