When are horizontal agreements relating to environmental objectives necessary or efficient from a social perspective? When should they be discontinued pursuant to competition concerns? Such agreements can create interesting challenges for competition authorities.
The OECD today published Horizontal Agreements in the Environmental Context, a compilation of the materials presented and discussed at a Competition Committee roundtable held in October 2010. This publication, which includes an executive summary, a summary of the discussion and contributions by national delegations, is available at http://www.oecd.org/dataoecd/55/15/49139867.pdf.
