This event is part of Chapter Zero series in collaboration with Freshfields and the Centre for Climate Engagement.
The series explore the legal considerations for the transition to net zero. In three steps, we aim to empower board members to get ahead of the legal curve and equip NEDs to drive effective boardroom decision-making to accelerate the transition.
The transition will present significant legal challenges and opportunities for organisations across industries. NEDs have a key role to play in helping boards navigate the complex legal landscape.
In this series, legal experts, industry leaders and experienced NEDs will share insights, knowledge and practical advice to help participants deepen their understanding of the necessary legal implications of the transition to net zero.
Session 3 – Strategic climate planning
Tuesday 13 February, 3:30pm to 7:00pm GMT, in-person
As companies move to develop credible transition plans, the legal landscape becomes a critical factor in shaping their journeys. From transformational M&A to value chain innovation and system advocacy, the role of law in enabling and accelerating climate strategies cannot be overlooked. In this session we will delve into the legal dimensions of credible climate strategies, exploring the opportunities and strategies they present.

This session will run from 3:30 to 7:00pm, with a core session from 4:00-6:00pm and opportunity to network before and after.

The participants gained valuable insights and practical guidance on how to navigate this evolving landscape, enabling you to provide effective oversight and guidance to your organisations.

From short-term climate performance to adaptation, disclosure requirements to supply chain relationships, capital raising to transactions, the landscape can be overwhelming. This session brought clarity by identifying and prioritising the key legal considerations that should be at the forefront of your mind.
