Europees Semester: sociale en werkgelegenheidsaspecten in de jaarlijkse strategie voor duurzame groei 2021 (A9-0026/2021 - Lina Gálvez Muñoz) EN

Schriftelijke stemverklaringen

The European Semester cycle is a crucial element in ensuring sound economic governance across all Member States. The importance is heightened this year by the economic crisis we face due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, in particular the employment and social dimensions.
I am strongly supportive of the majority of elements of the ‘Report on the European Semester for economic policy coordination: Employment and Social Aspects in the Annual Sustainable Growth Strategy 2021’. Our 2021 economic policy needs to be coherent with our social and environmental goals if we want to ensure that the EU’s recovery from the pandemic is sustainable and leaves no one behind.
Unfortunately, I had to abstain on the final vote on the report due to unnecessary calls for a common consolidated corporate tax base (CCCTB) and public country-by-country reporting (CbCR), to which I am fundamentally opposed. I regret that my colleagues repeatedly include such references in reports when these not relevant to the European Semester.

We welcome this important report, which calls on the EU to adopt mandatory due diligence legislation. This would be a crucial step for ensuring more sustainable and responsible business practices regarding protection for human rights and the environment, as well as ensuring access to justice for victims.
At the same time, we want to ensure that future legislation is not overly burdensome for SMEs. We believe that this report strikes the right balance by advocating a proportional and risk-based approach, while also calling for appropriate technical and financial assistance for SMEs.
We hope that the Commission’s upcoming legislative proposal will take forward many of the ideas put forward in this report and help the EU to lead the way towards more people- and planet-friendly business practices worldwide.
