The European Union (EU) is taking major strides to help combat climate change by instituting a ban on diesel cars, enforcing existing climate regulations among member states, and announcing the EU Green Deal initiative. Despite these efforts, the EU Commission still struggles to enforce any such policies among member states who fail to comply. We’re exploring several of the new climate policies being instituted and discussing how the EU is reacting to noncompliance.
Joining us for this conversation is Dr. Michael Hofmann. Michael is an associate in the Antitrust and Competition Practice Group in Sheppard Mullin’s Brussels office. He focuses on all aspects of European and German competition law matters. Michael wrote his doctoral thesis in the area of energy competition law and holds a Master of Laws degree (LL.M.) in International Commercial Law from the University of Aberdeen (UK). He is fluent in English in addition to his native German.
