Climate change is at the forefront of global news and politics, but it is not just an issue for politicians, policy makers and those working in the energy or environmental fields. Climate change is one of the most significant challenges for business that has ever existed. It is one of the few issues that can be described as truly pervasive, affecting all sectors, all jurisdictions and all parts of the supply chain.
We are therefore launching a new series of articles to walk through many of the key areas in which climate change disputes may arise, and which companies should bear in mind when assessing their own legal, business and reputational risks. We wanted to share this series with those with an interest in the insurance sector given the potential insurance implications that climate disputes can have.
Our global team of disputes experts will examine aspects such as shareholder disputes, regulatory investigations, greenwashing, arbitration, insurance, international law, public and administrative law, human rights and supply chain liability, among others.
You can read the first installment in this series here: Climate disputes – A 360-degree perspective.
We encourage you to subscribe to this series via our ESG blog to read about the full breadth of the disputes risks in this challenging space.
