The latest edition of our Sustainable Views newsletter.

Dear Reader,

We may be nearing the height of Europe’s summer holiday season, but the flow of international ESG news has shown no signs of slowing down.

In this week’s round-up, we have what is believed to be Australia’s first legal challenge against a company’s carbon neutrality claims brought by a consumer group; a consultation on the UK auditors’ ethical standard; Latin American countries’ joint declaration (though not a regional policy yet) to combat deforestation in the Amazon forest; S&P Global dropping its numerical ESG credit scores amid anti-ESG sentiment in the US and mounting regulatory interest into sustainability raters – and more.

Below you will also find the most popular articles of the past few days, so you can monitor what our Sustainable Views community has been reading.

Enjoy the weekend,

Silvia
