Climate Change Litigation: What Board Directors Need to Know

23 June 2022

Produced by the Commonwealth Climate and Law Initiative (CCLI) in collaboration with the CGI.

This briefing, the first in a quarterly series, consists of an executive summary made up of key takeaways, key questions for boards and key case study examples, based on recent activity in the climate litigation area. From the summary, readers will be able to dive into more detail on the following climate litigation sub-topics:  

  • fiduciary duty claims
  • greenwashing and misleading disclosure claims
  • climate damages claims
  • human rights-related claims
  • compensatory claims
  • anti-climate litigation

The briefing will provide board directors with an overview of the evolving climate litigation space and what it means for them in their capacity as a non-executive director. It will enable board directors to ask the right questions in the boardroom with respect to informing and preparing their board for the risks and opportunities they may encounter, with a focus on climate change litigation.

Please let your Chapters know about this exciting work coming out next week!
