UK Directors’ legal duties in relation to climate change
October 11, 2021 @ 8:30 am – 10:00 am BST

In this webinar, in partnership with the Deloitte Academy, we discussed how climate risks are covered within the existing corporate law framework, the legal implications of developments such as mandatory TCFD reporting and the increased regulatory and stakeholder pressures on disclosing transition plans and scenario analysis. We also considered the landmark ruling in the Netherlands which required Shell to reduce its emissions by 2030 – and what this may mean for other corporates
