Climate Change

The management of carbon and wider climate change initiatives remain at the forefront of the political agenda and present ever increasing challenges for businesses.

Our worldwide climate change practice group has advised extensively on carbon related projects, initiatives to mitigate carbon impacts and the development of CSR policies and carbon management strategies for clients. For more on the work of the Climate Change Practice Group, please also see emissions trading.

Allen & Overy is also at the forefront of the renewable energy market, advising both companies and financiers across the renewable energy spectrum, including hydro, energy from waste, solar, wind, biomass, biofuels and co-firing. We assist clients on the regulatory aspects of a wide range of renewables projects, as well as the environmental economic instruments which are so essential in making such projects viable, such as the UK’s Renewables Obligation, green certificates and tariffs in Europe, and emissions credits under the Kyoto Protocol.

The geographic reach of Allen & Overy, including the transfer of knowledge between different offices and jurisdictions, means that we are able to keep abreast of the latest green initiatives and legislative developments occurring around the globe.
