Climate shakeup.

Bloomberg reports how Frans Timmerman’s departure will arguably be most keenly felt on the international stage. Vice president Maroš Šefčovič will take over Timmerman’s Green Deal duties.

With Timmermans out, all eyes are on Šefčovič, a career diplomat who knows the energy portfolio very well, to lead the EU into contentious talks at the upcoming COP28 climate summit.
