The Green Deal, Circular Economy & More - An EU Environmental Law Update with Andrew Waite
Developments in environmental law continue at pace within the European Union following Brexit and need to be considered by those whose clients have interests extending to continental Europe. Even for those who do not, developments in the EU may point to future policies and laws in the UK.
This seminar will consider the major initiatives of the European Commission: the Green Deal and the Circular Economy as well as the most important legislative proposals arising from them.
Brexit has added further layers of complexity, with retained EU law and amended EU retained law applying in Great Britain. Meanwhile, the Northern Ireland Protocol applies for most but not all EU environmental law in Northern Ireland. The Trade and Cooperation Agreement governs how the EU and the UK will work together and diverge in the future.
This 3-hour course will consider all these topics and assess the prospects for environmental law and the regulatory burdens and benefits for industry.
