How the European Commission carried out a public consultation concerning the Sustainable Corporate Governance initiative
Byla 1956/2021/VB - Atidaryta Trečiadienis | 08 gruodžio 2021 - Atitinkama institucija Europos Komisija
The complainants, a group of civil society organisations, are concerned with how the European Commission carried out a public consultation on the Sustainable Corporate Governance initiative, which aims to encourage companies to better manage sustainability issues - including the protection of the environment and social and human rights - in their operations. The complainants contend that, in reporting on the outcome of the consultation, the Commission did not properly take into account the views of all respondents to the consultation.
The Ombudsman opened an inquiry and, as a first step, set out a series of questions to the Commission.
