A sustainable future: competition policy and the environment

July 7, 2023 Competition policy and the climate

We wrote last year about Michelle’s co-published paper (with Simon Holmes) on competition policy and climate / sustainability: this has now been published in the European Competition Law Review.

This is one of the most active areas of competition law. There is tension between a need to use the competition toolkit to tackle climate change, and fears that companies will exploit new openings to monopolise further. In between, lies a struggle for both climate justice and economic justice, and there is a lot to play for.
