Event Details

The twin crises of climate change and Covid-19 have brought home the urgent need for greater collaboration between businesses to achieve desirable social and political objectives. If carbon-neutral goals are to be met, government aspirations will only go so far; legislation and regulation will not be enough. Collaboration between businesses will be needed to reduce unnecessary waste (e.g. packaging, road miles etc.) and to develop carbon-neutral alternatives such as domestic boilers, as well as a host of other initiatives.

Equally, the Covid 19 crisis has shown that competition law had to be suspended in order to allow supermarkets to collaborate to ensure continuation of food supplies during supply chain interruptions, and to allow private hospitals to collaborate with each other and with NHS hospitals to ensure the most efficient use of health sector resources during a pandemic.

This event will explore whether and if so how the competition regime needs to become more flexible to achieve desirable societal goals in the future.
