Competition Law and Sustainability – Sustainability as a Key Factor in Competition

The European Commission sets with the Green Deal a benchmark for the sustainable development of the European economy. With an enforcement in competition law, sustainability should be fostered. But how will this effect European business actions? Will the parameter of sustainability be a soil for antitrust? Discover with our experts these questions and use the opportunity to contribute to the discussion in various occasions.
