Climate change has been one of the dominating policy debates in the recent past. With its #GreenDeal, the EU Commission has emphasized that ecological impact will heavily influence future decision making and hence have a direct effect on the European society and businesses. But how does it affect you?
The automatism of googling to understand and potentially forge an own opinion does not work well in politics.
In the last four years, the European Commission has released almost 1000 documents mentioning climate change. The European Parliament responded with five times that amount. On top, 28, now 27, member states are seeing their own debates, visions and policies developing. And this is without mentioning the heavy politics around #climatechange, that policy makers also fight over their social media channels.
So how can you figure out, how climate change policies will affect you or your business?
Media will give you a (slightly coloured) but generally good meta-view, yet insufficient to really assess the potential impact of the debates. So you turn to interest groups (unions, professional groups, trade unions, NGOs) which are able to provide you with more detailed insights. If you are looking for individualised services, you finally turn to public affairs professionals.
What do all these information providers have in common? You trust them to be able to process enough information to be able to help you. But do you believe that they are aware and knowledgeable of these 5000 EU documents around climate change? Have they read all tweets and applied a consistent process to identify what is relevant and what is not?
Even if they wanted to, they can’t.
Because they cannot just follow #climatechange. They might also follow #healthcare or #energy or #VAT or #employment. The list has no end.
