Corporate Due Diligence for Climate Change Impacts: The Status Quo

Corporate Due Diligence for Climate Change Impacts: The Status Quo

Speaking Engagement

The idea that companies have responsibilities to address their climate change impacts is not new. However, the recent BIICL-led study for the European Commission on due diligence requirements through the supply chain found that within companies, "human rights and climate change processes often take place in 'silos.'"

In this Human Rights Due Diligence Forum webinar series hosted by the British Institute of International and Comparative Law, the discussion will focus on the nature of due diligence as a legal standard of care, how this can be applied in relation to climate change and what the practical implications for companies are likely to be.

In the first episode of the series, speakers will discuss the status quo of current corporate due diligence practices relating to climate change impacts and consider to what extent these could be utilized, integrated, adapted and expanded to meet any future mandatory due diligence legal standard. WilmerHale Senior Associate Stuart Bruce will be a featured speaker on this panel.
