Mercosur deal at odds with EU carbon neutrality aim, study claims

Mercosur trade deal is incompatible with the EU’s commitment to carbon neutrality and “may undermine global efforts to avert climate change”, according to analysis conducted for the Greens/European Free Alliance group. The political agreement reached in June by the EU and Mercosur countries (Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay) is still in the process of technical and legal revision and subject to endorsement by national governments and the European Parliament. Austria, France and Ireland are set to block the deal.
