Legislative, regulatory and voluntary developments (e.g. EU Climate law, Green Deal, carbon border adjustment etc)
We advise on operational and product related climate regulation (including energy efficiency, pollution abatement, the EU carbon border adjustment mechanism, and emissions trading schemes), and commercial requirements to undertake climate change assessments, deliver best available technologies and to report on GHG emissions.
Increasingly, we support our corporate clients in finding mechanisms to assess and manage their climate change impact and the carbon footprint of their supply chain and to enable them to respond to counterparty and stakeholder requirements for increased carbon efficiency and carbon disclosure.
We are one of the few law firms who have actively participated in the international climate change conferences and we continue to follow global climate policy-making closely. We have in-depth knowledge of international and European climate change law and policy and regularly advise organisations and trade associations on the opportunities and threats presented by climate change.
