Climate change brings a range of risks (and opportunities) for organisations. Beyond the physical, these risks include transitional risks such as regulatory change and stakeholder pressure to reduce emissions, through to legal liability and litigation risks. In this session Stephanie will explore these risks, focussing on the latest regulatory changes and summarising the trends and developments in climate-related legal claims overseas and in New Zealand. Stephanie will also identify the key questions and matters that organisations should consider as part of their risk-management strategy, and introduce the Chancery Lane Project; a collaborative effort of lawyers from around the world offering contractual solutions for organisations to manage their impact on climate change.
