Environmental law is important in the context of the climate agreement and the energy transition.

Environmental law comprises several sub-disciplines, such as spatial planning and the environment and related aspects such as noise, external safety, emissions, water, waste, nature protection and soil pollution. It plays a key role in area development, infrastructural projects, energy projects such as wind and solar parks, and other spatial developments. Environmental law is also very important in the context of the implementation of the Dutch national climate agreement and the energy transition.
