Understanding how climate change is shaping legal risks today ensures that businesses can thrive tomorrow.
Concerns around the physical impacts of climate change are reshaping the business landscape across every economic sector and are rapidly shifting the decision-making context in which organisations are operating. The fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic has cast new light on the implications of failing to address systemic risks that present large-scale, and often foreseeable shocks, such as those driven by climate change.
We understand that foreseeable climate impacts have wide-ranging implications that can translate into legal risks and opportunities. These legal risks can arise from new climate-related regulations, laws, and litigation, as well as compliance with existing law.
A proactive and strategic response to these climate-related legal risks is not just a measure of corporate performance and social responsibility but is increasingly indispensable to future corporate success and value.
