Dear Reader,

Whether it’s green energy, air quality or the upcoming Climate Change Conference, the environment is in.

I was touched by the optimistic tone of ‘L’écologie du bonheur’, by the Prix Francqui’s 2009 laureate, Eric Lambin. Isn’t mankind inevitably compelled to respect and promote the environment to be happy? In other words, isn’t protecting the environment simply protecting one’s own happiness?

Eric Lambin provides a clear and outstandingly documented synthesis of the interaction between human happiness and the environment. Finally, could man’s benevolent disposition towards nature not the key to the fight for our environment?

The environment is also very much on our minds within CMS DeBacker. Our expanding GreenLaw practice is launching its Website today. The site www.greenlaw.be will keep you abreast of the newest developments in environmental and energy law.

As usual, our newsletter brings you an interesting array of articles from across our practices. Enjoy!

Luc Depré - Head of the Environment practice
