As the host of the ICN Annual Conference in 2021, the Hungarian Competition Authority – the GVH – chose ‘Sustainable development and competition law’ to be the topic of its special project.

As part of this project, the GVH conducted a survey among ICN members and NGAs on their experience concerning sustainability and competition law.

The topic attracted great international interest and numerous competition authorities (52) and NGAs (41) submitted their responses revealing available experience in this field.
