Net Zero Strategies: The Challenge for Government and Business
Baker Botts is delighted to participate in a webinar hosted by Oxera titled Net Zero Strategies: The Challenge for Government and Business on Tuesday 14 September from 14:00 – 17:00 CEST.
The webinar will gather a number of speakers to discuss the key elements of the strategies and measures that are needed to meet emissions targets. In preparation for COP-26, governments, businesses, regional and local communities are making commitments to achieve CO2 emissions targets by 2030 and 2050. A large number of strategy documents have already been published that outline the principal measures which will be necessary to meet these goals.
Dr. Leigh Hancher, Senior Advisor at Baker Botts, will be participating in Breakout Session 2 focusing on Sustainability and EU State Aid Control at 5.25 CEST.
Topics covered will include:
- Are the changes introduced by the Commission in the state aid rules appropriate to
support member states in achieving the climate targets (or, for example, should any
proposed measures serve wider sustainability goals (e.g. reduction of air, land and water
- Should the WTO’s anti-subsidy regime be amended in order to strengthen international
discipline and coordination on projects and schemes with significant effects on
sustainability (e.g. aid to fossil-fuel based industries)?
