Navigating ESG Compliance

Understanding CSRD, CSDDD and climate change litigation risks

About the event

Societal expectations and regulations around ESG are evolving rapidly, presenting both significant opportunities and serious risks for organizations. During this 2-hour training session, we will examine the most relevant upcoming regulations that will impact European businesses dealing with upcoming supply chain and reporting legislation. Additionally, we will explore litigation cases related to ESG, such as climate change litigation and greenwashing litigation. We will discuss how to identify and prevent risks and the steps to take when faced with such cases. Finally, we will discuss the potential of Alternative Dispute Resolution for resolving green energy and energy transition disputes.

This training is gratuitously offered by Eversheds Sutherland and ICC Netherlands.
