Editor’s Note

Editor’s Note Dear Reader, It is my pleasure to welcome you to this second issue of World Competition of the year. This issue deals with extremely topical subjects, ranging from digital markets to environmental policy, with which competition law and policy will undoubtedly continue to be confronted in the months to come. The first article deals with the Inability-to-pay fine reductions in European cartel cases. Garry Gabison, Ioannis Kokkoris, and Nandini Pahari explore the process by which the European Commission can consider ‘the economic and social context’ of cartel members when imposing fines. Through the analysis of case law and former EC investigations and by collecting data related to the companies involved in such cases, the authors aim at showing the opaqueness of this process and make recommendations with a view to make it much more transparent and predictable. With the article entitled Think green before you apply: EU competition law and climate-change abatement, Jacques Buhart and David Henry reflect on the role that competition law can play in pursuing the European Union’s goal to achieve climate neutrality by 2050. In order to reach this objective, the authors consider it necessary to adjust the application of both Article 101 (3) TFEU http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png World Competition Law and Economics Review Kluwer Law International

Abstract

Dear Reader, It is my pleasure to welcome you to this second issue of World Competition of the year. This issue deals with extremely topical subjects, ranging from digital markets to environmental policy, with which competition law and policy will undoubtedly continue to be confronted in the months to come. The first article deals with the Inability-to-pay fine reductions in European cartel cases. Garry Gabison, Ioannis Kokkoris, and Nandini Pahari explore the process by which the European Commission can consider ‘the economic and social context’ of cartel members when imposing fines. Through the analysis of case law and former EC investigations and by collecting data related to the companies involved in such cases, the authors aim at showing the opaqueness of this process and make recommendations with a view to make it much more transparent and predictable. With the article entitled Think green before you apply: EU competition law and climate-change abatement, Jacques Buhart and David Henry reflect on the role that competition law can play in pursuing the European Union’s goal to achieve climate neutrality by 2050. In order to reach this objective, the authors consider it necessary to adjust the application of both Article 101 (3) TFEU
