Former EU climate commissioner lands VW job
The European Commission's former climate commissioner, Connie Heegaard, has joined a "sustainability council" at disgraced car company Volkswagen. The German car company last year admitted to cheating in emissions tests on millions of diesel vehicles. "At a first glance, it seems that Mrs Hedegaard will not have a management position in this company," said an EU commission spokesperson. It follows controversial career moves by several former commissioners.
