The Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM) actively contributes to the public debate. ACM calls for the attention of government, lawmakers, and the corporate sector whenever it believes that changes to rules (existing or planned), policy or activities can help protect public interests better that fall under its statutory duties.
In this year’s edition of InSight, ACM explains its role as competition authority vis-à-vis private cooperation arrangements with regard to sustainability. ACM will then touch upon the increasingly significant influence of innovative forms of digital services on business models of companies, questions about competition, and consumer protection. Finally, several challenging issues concerning the health care system and the energy sector are discussed.
