Our Curious Amalgam Podcast

Where Next? Climate Change, Sustainability and EU Competition Law

June 8, 2020

London partner Matthew Hall co-hosted the June 8 episode of the ABA’s Our Curious Amalgam podcast on the topic “Where Next? Climate Change, Sustainability and EU Competition Law.”

Climate change is one of the most pressing issues facing the world and responses are needed. Is antitrust/competition law part of the problem or can it be part of the solution as companies and governments react? Emma Cochrane of law firm Linklaters in London joins Matthew Hall and John Roberti to discuss the application of EU and UK competition, merger control and State aid law to climate change both now and in the future. Listen to this episode to learn more about the role that competition law may play in driving measures to slow climate change.

Our Curious Amalgam explores topics in antitrust, competition, consumer protection, data protection, and privacy law around the world with leading experts in those areas. It is an amalgam because it is a group of diverse topics all in one place. It is curious because it gets the experts and asks them in-depth questions.
