2023 Antitrust and Sustainability: Friends or Foes?

2023 Antitrust and Sustainability: Friends or Foes?

Washington DC and Virtual
Speaking Engagement

Faced with the serious threat of climate change, firms are increasingly considering a wide range of conduct that could, at once, adversely affect competition and promote environmental justice and sustainability goals. Congressional leaders and state attorneys general have raised serious antitrust concerns with those competitor collaborations. Are the antitrust concerns legitimate? Or simply a pretext to oppose environmental, social, and governance (ESG) policies? What balance should the government strike between protecting competition and promoting initiatives to save the planet? Can antitrust laws be deployed to promote environmental justice? 

WilmerHale Partner and Chair of the Energy, Environment and Natural Resource Practice Peggy Otum will join panelist as they explore these topics and more in this free program that will be held in person at Howard and available for viewing via Zoom.
