There are so many ESG-related publications and developments that it is hard to keep abreast of them all. For this reason, every two weeks, our firm has been publishing a tracker of ESG-related publications and developments, with a primary focus on developments that may be of most interest to or impact our clients, be they corporates, asset managers or asset owners.

Key updates covered in this edition include:

  • Spain ratifies the Additional Protocol to the European Social Charter establishing a system of collective complaints to the Council of Europe;
  • The Spanish Council of Ministers has approved the transposition of the European Accessibility Act;
  • The European Commission’s launch of its 2022 call for large-scale projects under the EU Innovation Fund; and
  • The European Commission has filed a lawsuit against Spain for the repeated negligence of the Government in complying with nitrate water protection regulations.

If you have any ESG-related questions, please get in touch with your usual contact at HSF who will be able to direct you as appropriate.
