Anti Trust Statement

Competition law is often compatible with joint initiatives between competitors which pursue sustainability goals. These laws should not therefore be allowed to stand in the way of legitimate projects unnecessarily. In many cases, initiatives will not affect a key parameter of competition. In other cases, an analysis may help show that cooperation is the only way to achieve progress or that it will allow much faster progress. At the same time, groups of competitors need to know that certain topics and discussions remain off-limits (see below). Joint projects between competitors must also be designed and implemented in a manner compliant with competition law.
