Our legal advice on aspects related to the environment and climate change is broad and ranges.
From general issues – licences and authorisations, environmental assessment procedures, sanctioning and environmental liability proceedings, actions before authorities or the preparation of draft legislation – to maximum specialization in specific fields of action such as water and waste, contaminated waste and land, emissions trading and climate change policies, REACH and CLP and, in general, activities related to the industrial environment.
Our clients include representatives from the main sectors of the Iberian industrial fabric (cement, steel, chemical and all its applications, paper, environmental operators, etc.).) as well as the main collective systems of extended producer responsibility for waste (ECOEMBES, ECOVIDRIO, SIGAUS, SIGNUS, ECOASIMELEC, ECOFIMÁTICA and ECOPILAS) and we collaborate with their business associations and federations (among others, FEIQUE, ANEABE, ANFABRA ASELUBE, AEPLA, ASPAPEL, VETERINDUSTRIA, ADELMA or ANAIP) and representative institutions such as CEOE.
We have in-depth knowledge of the functioning of public authorities – with which we often work together and advise on environmental issues – and in which some of our lawyers have held positions of varying degrees of responsibility in the past.
Our legal services related to the environment include:
La recientemente aprobada Directiva (UE) 2019/904 impone a los Estados miembros la adopción de medidas para «la reducción del impacto de ciertos productos de plástico en el medio ambiente».
