Climate Change litigation
15 August 2008
The risk of litigation claims in relation to carbon emissions has increased, putting at risk the profits of major corporations, they way the do business and their market value.
Conventional energy-intensive industrial methods, particularly in the energy and manufacturing sectors, and products linked to carbon emissions are at risk of being challenged in the courts.
We held a webinar jointly with our better friends Thompson Hine (USA) and Gowlings (Canada) which looked at issues relating to climate change litigation:
- the foundations of climate change litigation claims
- who is at risk for such actions
- the hurdles plaintiffs face to achieve success
- the strategies available to the defence
- proactively managing the risk for the carbon emitters and their stakeholders
