Governments, investors and consumers are increasingly focused on holding companies accountable for climate change. Lawsuits continue to be filed as impacts from climate change accelerate and pressure on companies to take action builds. But what are the most likely sources of liability for companies relating to climate change? The presenters will explore: emerging laws imposing climate-related disclosure requirements and the increasing focus on environmental justice, the challenges and consequences of measuring and disclosing climate and sustainability goals for companies, hurdles to recovery for impacts from climate change and potential subrogation implications for insurers.
