In this session, a panel of Pinsent Masons experts from across the globe will explore how the changing policy, regulatory, commercial and consumer landscape may give rise to disputes.

Climate change and sustainability is becoming an ever more pressing item on corporate agendas, as governmental, regulatory, investor and consumer focus on these issues intensifies.

Amongst the many challenges to navigate, businesses are becoming increasingly concerned about where disputes are likely to arise. These concerns have been fuelled by a number of recent high-profile court decisions against public and private sector bodies alike, not only in the US but also now in jurisdictions in Europe and Australia.

We will examine the key areas of focus for organisations looking to manage these risks and scan the horizon for future developments and exposures.


  • Claims against governments and planning challenges
  • Actions based on polluting activities
  • Shareholder activism and exposures for company directors
  • Greenwashing of financial and other products and services
  • Disputes arising on constructions projects
  • The role of arbitration in climate change disputes
