Climate goals and energy targets: legal perspectives

30.04.2019 EU law

On Tuesday April 30th, Stibbe organizes a seminar on climate goals and energy targets.
Climate change has incited different international and supranational institutions to issue climate goals and renewable energy targets. Both the UN and the EU have led this movement with various legal instruments.

The seminar will focus on the enforceability in court of these climate goals and energy targets: Are they enforceable in court? Will they impact new or existing projects? To whom will the extra costs be passed on?

During the break and after the seminar, there will be plenty of opportunities to exchange ideas with the speakers and other attendees.

European regulatory initiatives for online platforms and search engines

Short Reads - As part of the digital economy, the rise of online platforms and search engines raises all kinds of legal questions. For example, do bicycle couriers qualify as employees who are entitled to ordinary labour law protections? Or should they be considered self-employed (see our Stibbe website on this issue)? The rise of online platforms also triggers more general legal questions on the relationship between online platforms and their users.
