Corporate Climate Litigation in Practice **rescheduled until further notice**

New date will be announced soon

Corporations are key contributors to the climate crisis and therefore also essential to the global endeavour to curb its impacts. Voluntary action has proven insufficient to make corporate actors support societal transformation towards a climate friendlier path.

Corporate climate litigation uses a number of different strategies and tools to influence the behaviour of corporate actors. They often aim at the companies or their management, requiring them to take more ambitious action as regards the climate crisis or environmental protection and align their corporate practices with law, policy and planetary boundaries. Such litigation and legal intervention can include greenwashing claims, action by regulators or investors and shareholders. This seminar will demonstrate and discuss why corporate tools and frameworks can be powerful levers in addressing the climate crisis; it will provide an overview of trends and practitioners will discuss concrete case examples.
