The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) had launched a “call for inputs” to help inform advice the CMA will provide to government on how competition and consumer regimes could better support the UK’s net zero and environmental sustainability goals.
The CMA had been asked to consider the following questions:
(a) If, and how, do current competition and consumer legal frameworks constrain or frustrate initiatives that might support the UK’s Net Zero and sustainability goals?
(b) Are there changes to the UK’s competition and consumer law that would help to achieve the UK’s Net Zero and sustainability goals?
(c) Are there other opportunities within the UK’s competition and consumer policy toolbox that would support the UK’s Net Zero and sustainability goals, which the government should be considering?
CIBSE did not submit a response to this consultation as there were no significant comments from members.
