The Authority for Consumers & Markets (ACM) wants to make the rules more flexible for competing businesses who agree to the terms of sustainability. Especially if it's klimaatdoelen closer and closer together, writes EVERY Thursday in conceptleidraad. The financial markets authority makes the argument that the benefits to society of achieving the klimaatdoelen is greater than the negative impact of binding agreements between competing firms.
In a normal situation in the financial markets it is that companies do not have any agreement to make, as they can often have a negative effect on the consumer. It could be that the companies, for example, can make agreements on a minimum level of prices in the market. In the area of sustainability and wants to be DESIGNED right to make an exception.
"We have seen that companies increasingly want to take responsibility for a more sustainable society. That we welcome the report," writes the PAST-chairman of the board, and Martijn Snoep.
in The financial markets is used as an example, five of the producers of a given product, which, together, make arrangements to have the product is a CO2-neutral production. The appointment will be for an increase in price will lead to consumers, as the production becomes more and more expensive, but that disadvantage is less than the benefit that events bring to both the users and non-users of the product. EVERY wants to be that such an arrangement is permitted, because it is the society as a whole benefits from the event, and this contributes to the klimaatdoelen of the government.
The terms of a conceptleidraad. A policy is a document that shows how, in the PAST, the law, interpret it, and maintain it. Because it is still a concept, it is a guideline, not right away. First, this should take some time to visit special interest groups, corporations, and the European Commission. They will have until 1 October to comment on the guidelines.
