Lawyers specialising in Environmental and Climate Change Issues

With society's growing awareness of climate change, and now also driven by the EU Green Deal, a growing number of companies have firmly integrated environmental aspects in their culture and strategy. However, making a sustainable contribution to achieving climate protection goals often involves considerable investments. 

Our lawyers begun working on matters involving the environment and climate change from an early stage. Thanks to our full-service approach at CMS, our lawyers specialising in environmental and climate change issues have a trained eye for environment and climate change issues from a wide range of perspectives. They assist companies in a variety of ways evaluating proven business models under environmental protection aspects and developing new ones - for example in the segments of hydrogen, emobility or the city of the future. 

The CMS lawyers specialising in environmental and climate change issues advise on the regulatory requirements for companies at European and national level as well as on traditional environmental law and planning law. Our lawyers also know the answers to a wide range of special questions, for example with regard to emissions trading, stricter air pollution control regulations, extended product liability or IT and data protection aspects of Future Mobility. The other "major" issues that CMS lawyers specialising in environmental and climate change issues deal with include the coal phase-out and carbon tax, expanding renewable energy sources and electricity storage as well as grid expansion.
