The Implications for Investors of Developments in Climate Law

On 21st May, Pensions & Investment Research Consultants (PIRC), hosted a webinar surrounding the concepts and general trends in climate law and litigation globally. 

London Senior Associate, Simon Bishop, joined the panel to discuss climate law and litigation in the UK and Australia, covering the following key topics:

  • Recent case-law on environmental damage and corporate liability.
  • The REST case in Australia (regarding superannuation funds and climate change) and the legal tools in this jurisdiction for something similar.
  • Shifts in pensions regulation, shifts in financial and corporate reporting, and what steps investors may take.
