About the Authors
  • One of the fundamental challenges currently facing the EU is that of reconciling its economic and environmental policies. Nevertheless, the role of environmental protection in EU competition law and policy has often been overlooked. Recent years have witnessed a shift in environmental regulation from reliance on command and control to an increased use of market-based environmental policy instruments such as environmental taxes, green subsidies, emissions trading and the encouragement of voluntary corporate green initiatives. By bringing the market into environmental policy, such instruments raise a host of issues that competition law must address. This interdisciplinary treatment of the interaction between these key EU policy areas challenges the view that EU competition policy is a special case, insulated from environmental concerns by the overriding efficiency imperative, and puts forward practical proposals for achieving genuine integration.

    • Interdisciplinary treatment of the increasing interaction between key EU policy areas provides important theoretical and practical guidance
    • Develops a considered, novel argument that challenges the reader to think in new ways about the relationship between EU environmental and competition policies
    • Detailed practical analysis of EU case law and decisional practice to date, as well as comparative examples from national and third-country jurisdictions, will be of value to academics and practitioners alike
