Competition and Sustainability critically examines how the market economy can be preserved without compromising the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN. Serving as a useful overview of the problems and solutions found in one of the most controversial issues in current antitrust doctrine, this topical book offers concrete policy options for EU competition law.

How can concerns over climate change, the supply chain, or animal welfare be integrated into antitrust? What can competition agencies do to help transform the market economy to a more sustainable one? Renowned experts in competition economics, law and sustainability answer these questions, and in doing so dissect issues such as cartels, exemptions, monopolisation, the environmental, social, and governance transformation, and merger control. Problems with government intervention in markets, quantification, and the danger of greenwashing are confronted with a thorough examination of the options for policy reform.

This indispensable book tackles the transformation to the sustainable market economy with competition at its core. It will prove useful to academics in the fields of competition and antitrust law, corporate law and governance, European law, environmental law, and political economy, as well as policymakers and practitioners working in legal and economic fields.
