We are proud to be a part of London Climate Action Week 2021 (LCAW), the annual event bringing together world-leading climate professionals and communities across London and beyond to find practical solutions to climate change.

Founded in 2019, LCAW is the largest independent climate change event in Europe, helping to shape our future into one that is net-zero, equitable and resilient. Rooted in London, our diverse, international city, LCAW uses its global perspective to spark climate action around the world.

We will be participating in sessions throughout the week which we hope you will be able to join us at:

Climate Change Disputes: Public International Law – too hot to handle

Tuesday, 29 June 2021, 2.00pm GMT

The Paris Agreement signed by 195 countries in 2015 enshrines a commitment to limit the increase in global temperature to well below 2°C compared to pre-industrial levels, in order to avoid the worst effects of climate change. The upcoming COP26 summit will urgently address measures to be taken by States to meet this commitment in light of the continued rapid rise in global temperatures. But the scale of regulatory change and commitment required will test state policy-making and impact across business communities. This session will address the issue of climate change disputes from the perspective of public international law and specifically cover recent and potential climate change-related claims against states, including investor-State disputes, and the prospect of reform of investment treaties, such as the ECT, to accommodate climate change objectives.

Andrew Cannon will be joined by panellists from Jones Day, Clifford Chance, Twenty Essex and Queen Mary University of London.
