Law and policy

Climate Change Liability Risk Conference in collaboration with Willis Towers Watson. The conference will form part of London Climate Action Week 2019. Throughout the morning conference we aim to explore climate change risk, in particular the liability risks faced by businesses, their directors and officers and their insurers.

The sessions will delve into current trends in climate change litigation including an increase in product liability claims brought by activists, states and cities against oil majors which are passing through the courts, especially, but not exclusively, in the United States.

The discussions will also look at the increase in claims against those who fail to adapt their businesses or professional advice to the physical risks a changing climate poses to infrastructure, processes, inputs or supply chains. Or who fail to adapt their business plans to account for the transition to a low-carbon economy. Climate risk must increasingly be built into business decision-making and directors and officers who fail to consider how climate risk impacts their bottom line may face claims now or in the future.
