Climate Change Liability: Directors and Officers

Clyde & Co are delighted to invite you to our "Climate Change Liability: Directors and Officers " seminar on 31 January.

Join us as our exciting panel of experts, including senior lawyer from Client Earth, Alice Garton and CEO of Carbon Tracker  Anthony Hobley,  examine international developments in the emerging field of climate change litigation. This seminar will address warnings given last year in a major report by the Prudential Regulation Authority, highlighting potential liabilities for companies and directors in relation to:

  • contribution to loss and damage caused by anthropogenic climate change;
  • a failure to adequately manage the business risks associated with climate change; and
  • inaccurate disclosure or reporting of climate related business risks.

These emerging exposures have implications for corporate governance in climate-risk exposed industries (from financial services to mining, infrastructure, agriculture, and beyond), for pensions trustees and for the insurance sector (in terms of professional indemnity and directors' and officers' insurance). We hope you can join us for what promises to be an engaging and thought provoking seminar.
