Climate Resilience

Our climate change lawyers cover every aspect of climate change law

The evidence is all around us. From rising sea and land temperatures to shrinking ice sheets, the threat of climate change is very real. In response, ambitious targets are now being set for the reduction of harmful waste, creating implications for organizations working across the energy, land and agriculture, banking and finance, real estate and transport industries to name but a few.

How you deal with those implications is important for a number of reasons. Climate change is a highly emotive issue, with a false move bringing the potential for catastrophic reputational damage. The regulatory burden has also increased enormously, with regulations tighter than ever before and an escalating number of litigation cases being brought globally.

But climate risk is about much more than the purely physical impacts. It also extends to transitional risk. What we mean by this is the risk to a company’s value of its key stakeholders ceasing to engage with it due to its failure to decarbonise in a sustainable and impactful way. Stakeholders such as investors, customers, business partners and employees.

With years of experience working across every aspect of the energy transition, we can help protect your business from these threats and also capitalize on the many opportunities climate change presents. We don’t just understand the law in this area, we help to shape it, with our lawyers at the forefront of legal, regulatory and market developments across the globe.
