Commonwealth Climate and law initiative

ABOUT

We connect the dots between climate science and economics, existing law and what that means in practice for corporate and investment governance.

We produce legal research and practical tools on how to integrate the risks and opportunities of climate change and biodiversity loss into corporate and investment governance, in order to minimise the risk of personal liability for directors, officers and investor fiduciaries, and maximise near term efforts in the transition to a sustainable economy.

Our founding partners are the University of Oxford Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment, ClientEarth, and Accounting For Sustainability.

SPOTLIGHT

In October 2021, we published a first-of-its-kind legal analysis on climate change and directors’ fiduciary duties under Delaware law. You can read the analysis here.
