While the trade in emissions rights is considered to be an efficient way to achieve the Kyoto targets, it has an impact on the companies involved. We provide these companies with advice on their legal and administrative obligations arising from emissions trading regulations.
We are one of the leading advisors in the emerging trade of emissions rights, with a team of specialists providing full legal assistance in all related areas of law. We provide advice on the civil and commercial, administrative, and tax aspects of emissions trading – all with a focus on inter-company trading.
Matters we act on consist of the allocation of emissions rights, advice regarding the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), and advice on Joint Implementation projects (JI).
Further to this, the team advises on air quality, environmental quality standards, national emissions ceilings, greenhouse gas emission trading (GHG), storage and innovate technologies like carbon capture.
We are also regularly asked to contribute to seminars and ministerial working groups.
