The best data - based overview of EU politics


Executive webinar: ‘fit for 55’, mapping MEPs’ views and influence (17.06.2021)

17th of June at 10:00-10:30 (Zoom)


MEP Jytte Guteland, S&D coordinator in the ENVI Committee in the European Parliament, and rapporteur on the European Climate law, joins our webinar tomorrow to discuss how the EP is likely to react to upcoming legislation from the Commission. 




The delay by the European Commission to present its ‘fit for 55’ package may also be due to hesitations in assessing the level of political support for some of the key provisions of this package. For this reason, VoteWatch Europe is taking a closer look at the positioning of MEPs to help forecast what we can expect to come out of this legislation. 


We will show what are the current political majorities and how the views of MEPs are being altered over time and how they differ from one component to the other (including GHG targets, CBAM or hydrogen amongst others). Join this free executive webinar for senior EU affairs professionals and find out more about the actual position and level of influence of key MEPs and how majorities are being built.


You will quickly be able to assess the size of your potential coalition and how to optimise your communication efforts.



We will address sub-topics like:


- EU targets for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 


- EU taxonomy for sustainable investments 


- Support for low-carbon hydrogen 


- Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM)


- Extension of EU Emissions Trading System (ETS)


- Role of biofuels in the Renewable Energy Directive (RED)



This session is free of charge, but it requires prior registration.


The briefing will be delivered by Doru Peter Frantescu, CEO of VoteWatch Europe and author of “How to Work with the European Parliament” (John Harper Publishing) and Davide Ferrari, Head of Research at VoteWatch.
