Benefits of sustainable diets
WWF commissioned Civic Consulting to conduct a cost-benefit analysis of the adoption of sustainable diets in France, Spain, Sweden, and the EU as a whole. The study investigated the projected effects in 2020 of a switch to sustainable diets by an additional 30% and an additional 70% of the population compared to the reference scenario, supported by the use of the CAPRI modelling framework. In addition, in order to encourage the adoption of these diets, the costs and benefits of a range of policy options were analysed and recommendations for their potential implementation developed.
UCPD in practice
Civic Consulting analysed for the European Commission how the Unfair Commercial Practices Directive (UCPD) is applied across the EU. The study focused on the fields of financial services and immovable property, for which the Directive currently does not provide for full harmonisation. In addition to scrutinising the implemen-tation of the UPCD, Civic Consulting reviewed other rules which the Member States have in place, and described the main unfair commercial practices in these sectors. Finally, the study provided recommendations for EU action based on national best practices.
