Empowering consumers for the green transition

At a Glance 03-05-2023

During its first May 2023 part-session, the European Parliament is expected to vote on the report adopted by the Committee on Internal Market and Consumer Protection (IMCO) on the European Commission's proposed directive on empowering consumers for the green transition. The proposal amends Directives 2005/29/EC and 2011/83/EU and seeks to improve consumer information and protection against unfair practices. IMCO's report strives to further strengthen protection and legal certainty for consumers and economic operators alike. The text voted in plenary will set Parliament's position for trilogue negotiations with the Council.
