    New study: Analysis of Regulatory & Supervisory Landscape relative to Energy Efficient Mortgages

    Today, the Nordic Energy Efficient Mortgage (NEEM) hub publishes a blueprint report on the complex and interconnected regulatory and supervisory landscape related to sustainable finance.

    The report concludes that no part of a banks’ activities will remain untouched by the various initiatives and actions, whether these bank activities are retail, funding or supervisory. In this context, the Nordic Energy Efficient Mortgages focusing on the Nordic countries offers a fast track to meeting the requirements of the policy and supervisory agenda from the perspective of energy efficient mortgages.

    New study: Economic value of the Swedish Mining Cluster – Today and in the future

    Today, Sigurd Næss-Schmidt, Partner at CE, presents key insights from our new study on the economic importance of the Swedish mining cluster, at Svemin’s (Swedish industry association of mines, mineral and metal producers) annual meeting.

    In our study, we find that the Swedish mining industry and the cluster of companies surrounding it (e.g. specialised mining equipment producers and metal- and steel producers) support 3% of the Swedish GDP, around 100,000-125,000 jobs and 8% of total Swedish exports. We also find that the cluster presents a large potential to contribute further in the future with local metals production, job opportunities, investments, and the development of new fossil free production technologies.

    New study: A novel pan-European survey of food delivery couriers finds evidence on the value of flexible work for couriers, consumers and restaurants in the food delivery ecosystem

    Based on a novel pan-European survey of more than 16,000 couriers, latest public information, as well as new data sought from food delivery platforms, we have analysed:

    • Why do people choose to work under an independent work model as a courier and what are their preferences regarding flexibility?
    • What are the main characteristics of the delivery platforms’ business models, and what role does the flexible supply of couriers play in serving demand?
    • What economic value is at risk if the flexible work model had to be abandoned?

    The evidence clearly demonstrates that couriers value the flexibility that their work for food delivery platforms provides.

    Were this flexibility to be curtailed via policy intervention, several major economic impacts would follow, harming these couriers (in terms of jobs and earnings), as well as  the entire food delivery eco-system consisting of consumers, restaurants and platforms.

    Addressing unmet needs of the European OMP Regulation

    Despite their moniker, Rare Diseases are a common health issue and affect over 30 million Europeans.

    Twenty years ago, rare diseases were truly orphaned, as only a handful of authorised medicines were available to treat them. This situation has changed in large part thanks to the European Orphan Medicinal Product (OMP) Regulation that put in place an incentive framework to attract more development into rare diseases.

    This has led to a significant improvement of the situation of rare disease patients, with many more authorised treatments being available. However, unmet needs still exist, ranging from a lack of authorised treatments, to a lack of transformative treatments where authorised treatments exist, to insufficient diagnosis and unequal patient access.

    In our new report "Innovating in Rare Diseases", we assess how the barriers to addressing those unmet needs can be tackled.

    We find that:

    • The current incentive framework should be evolved by maintaining current orphan designation thresholds, but allowing for recalibration of incentives.
    • Addressing the 95% and delivering on further unmet needs requires Europe to go beyond the incentives of the current OMP regulation to systematically addressing the barriers along the OMP lifecycle.
    • Partnerships are a key tool to overcoming those barriers.

    Building on existing initiatives and structures and inspired from partnership models in and beyond the rare disease space, we therefore propose six partnership-based solutions for the European OMP space.

     

    The study is commissioned by Takeda.
