Environment and sustainability are key topics of our time. Whether the current decision of the Federal Constitutional Court on the Climate Protection Act (Ref.: 1 BvR 2656/18 et al.) or various legislative activities, e.g. with the Clean Vehicles Procurement Act (SaubFahrzeugBeschG) and the Act on Corporate Due Diligence in Supply Chains (Supply Chain Act) – case law and legislation are currently defining the regulatory framework in various areas.
