Environmental

Keller and Heckman Europe advises clients on a full range of environmental issues, including waste and pollution matters.

Corporations based in Europe and those that conduct business in Europe need to stay abreast of EU environmental issues. EU and Member State environmental regulations can significantly impact business decisions.

At a minimum, companies must achieve continuous compliance with environmental laws or risk production delays, increased governmental oversight, private and government litigation, adverse media reports, monetary liability claims, and community outrage.

In particular, we advise on environmental issues relating to:

  • The Industrial Emissions Directive
  • The Water Framework Directive
  • Energy matters (particularly those related to biofuels)
  • Climate change
  • Carbon capture and storage
  • The EU Emissions Trading Scheme
  • The Environmental Liability Directive
  • The Environmental Crime Directive
