EVENT UPDATE - Baker Botts Energy Lunch: Collaboration is Key to Combat Climate Change - But (How) can Energy Companies Collaborate to Reduce their Environmental Impact without Breaching Competition Law?


Due to the ongoing situation with regards to the coronavirus, we have decided to cancel the Baker Botts Energy Lunch event on Tuesday 24 March. The health and safety of our clients, visitors, lawyers, and staff are our primary concern.

In the meantime we will be devoting a webinar to this same topic, and will make sure to communicate the details and a new date once confirmed.

As the climate crisis worsens and the EU looks to become the first big economic bloc to reach zero carbon emissions by 2050, could 2020 see climate concerns and environmental goals significantly affect competition law? Should regulators rethink the way they look at mergers to take into account how deals might benefit or harm the environment? How can energy companies work together to reduce their environmental impact without breaching competition law? To what extent should State aid be made conditional on environmental assessments?

If you have any questions on this event please contact Abigail Brookes.
