The climate change emergency is driving governments and companies worldwide to set increasingly ambitious sustainability targets – yet the pace of progress remains slow. What is becoming clear is that this is a global threat which requires collective and concerted action from all stakeholders. Hence, cooperation will be essential to effect real and swift progress.


Competition law, however, is often perceived as a barrier to companies needing to cooperate in this area. There are concerns that the current framework is too focused on an overly narrow view of consumer welfare and is ill-equipped to recognise and quantify the broader and longer-term societal benefits. As a result, companies are deterred from the much-needed cooperation for fear of infringing competition law.


This session is part of a webinar series bringing together perspectives from regulators, policymakers, economists, and legal practitioners worldwide, to explain that competition law need not be a problem but can be part of the solution to tackling this existential threat.


Speakers include:

Frédéric Jenny, Chairman of the OECD Competition Committee
Simon Holmes, Chair of the ICC Taskforce on Competition & Sustainability
Ori Schwartz, Head of OECD Competition Division
Ninette Dodoo, Partner, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer
Angélique de Brousse, Senior Legal Counsel - Competition EMEA, Johnson & Johnson
Maria Jaspers, Director of Cartels, DG Competition - European Commission
