Not only do corporations have an important role to play in response to global warming, but climate change also presents a series of commercial opportunities and risks.
New regulation creates a compliance challenge for businesses and a wave of climate change-related claims is building that are using conventional and novel case theories in the courts, arbitration and national contact point systems.
As governments incentivise the switch to green energy, new investment opportunities emerge. Novel financial instruments are being developed that bring together responsible investors and companies. And at the same time, asset managers and activists are pressurizing boards to divest their high-carbon assets.
We are advising our clients as they future-proof their businesses in the transition to a low-carbon economy. We ensure they stay ahead of evolving regulation, minimize climate change-related claims risk, and help them de-carbonize their portfolios and invest in green technologies.
