Stibbe's Energy transition and Climate dashboard

Stibbe published a new website: stibbeenergytransition.com (in Dutch only). The energy sector - like energy itself - is in a constant state of flux, particularly as energy producers shift from non-renewable to greener forms of production. New environmental and energy-related obligations at Dutch and European levels place new legal requirements on organisations, while opening up new opportunities in these exciting fields. Stibbe's Energy transition and Climate dashboard will keep you updated and prepared for these changes, no matter where or how they impact your organisation.
