Business Guide to Climate Disputes

Lake_Brienz_ Switzerland_P_1003

The Business Guide to Climate Disputes is intended to support global businesses to analyse and incorporate climate risks and opportunities into their strategy and risk management. The guide explores themes which arise from climate litigation risk, and the types of disputes that can be expected to arise with increasing frequency.

Climate change has different impacts on different sectors. Accordingly, the guide is organised across the firm’s ten sectors and includes insight from sector experts across our international offices.

The guide also complements the climate action we are taking in our own business. We have committed to a science-based target which requires us to halve our global business greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and we are the first law firm anywhere in the world to sign a corporate power purchase agreement.

We are also proudly supporting broader climate action through our pro bono and other efforts. We were appointed by the UK Government as the provider of Legal Services for the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) and we are a founding member of the Legal Sustainability Alliance, and the recently established Net Zero Lawyers Alliance.
