The Centre for Competition Law and Policy, in collaboration with, the Centre for Environment Law at the National University of Advanced Legal Studies, Kochi is organizing a three-day International Conference on ‘Sustainable Market Practices: Interplay Between Environmental Law and Competition Law’.
Competition law and policy, along with sustainable development must encourage sustainable market practices. It must give weight to consistent marketing actions that are in consonance with environmental policies and protection. Innovation and invention are the grund norm for economic development, that must however, calculate environmental impact and align with sustainable development goals.
Anti-competitive agreements and market abusive practices are major concerns under competition law. It is, however, more important to focus on green businesses and sustainable practices. When enterprises in the market shift to green business practices, they need to collaborate and harness their efforts and resources in support of sustainability objectives. Competition law may be perceived as a barrier to the much-needed co-operation and progress towards a more sustainable economy
