The newly established BIICL Human Rights Due Diligence Forum are hosting a webinar on Thursday 17 September on “The (intended) impact of climate change litigation on corporate due diligence”.
This webinar is the second of the ‘HRDD Forum Webinar Series: Human Rights Due Diligence for Climate Change Impacts’. The series looks at the nature of due diligence as a legal standard of care, how this can be applied in relation to climate change, and what the practical implications for companies are likely to be.
In this episode, the panel will consider whether climate change litigation is intended to impact on corporate due diligence and any evidence that litigation have made a tangible impact companies’ due diligence practices. They will also discuss whether litigation will drive corporate due diligence in the context of increasing mandatory legal requirements and climate issues.
