Jason Reeves and Deepa Sutherland to Present Webinar on Human Rights Due Diligence for Climate Change Impacts

October 1, 2020

Jason Reeves and Deepa Sutherland, of the London office of Zelle, will present a webinar on “Human Rights Due Diligence for Climate Change Impacts.”  The webinar will be hosted by the British Institute of International and Comparative Law and will take place from 11-12:30 BST on October 1, 2020. 

Developments around mandatory human rights due diligence laws are multiplying across Europe, and increasingly include climate change impacts within their scope. As a result, companies, regulators, judges, legal advisors, civil society and the public are asking what the legal implications of these due diligence laws will be for companies relating to their climate change impacts.

In this webinar series of the newly established BIICL Human Rights Due Diligence Forum, the discussion will turn 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.
