Summary

The increasing use of climate change-related litigation and activism is becoming a risk which UK businesses of all types cannot afford to ignore. City & Financial Global’s Climate and ESG Legal Risk Management Summit 2024, which is being held on 25 March, will provide delegates with a thorough analysis of all the key issues and practical guidance on how to mitigate the risk effectively. 

The third edition builds on the success of last year's event, which was widely regarded as providing a valuable forum which helped companies, financiers and their advisers gain a much better understanding of how to mitigate the risk of litigation and activism effectively.

Climate litigation and activism is on the rise. The number of cases filed and jurisdictions involved have more than doubled in recent years, partly due to a greater awareness of the prevalence of greenwashing and partly because regulators are compelling financial institutions and corporates to disclose much more information about the climate-related impact of their activities.

The summit will provide fund managers, banks, companies and their advisers with a thorough analysis of all the key issues, as well as practical guidance on how to mitigate the risk of litigation and activism effectively.
