Whether you have questions about liability issues, funding, competition cases, new business models or other aspects of sustainable development, dealing with the impact of new national and international environmental laws requires extensive knowledge and expertise.
Whatever your sector, we have the experts to interpret those laws, reduce risks and explore opportunities.
Our Head of Climate Risk & Sustainability, Marloes Brans, specialises in environmental law and spatial planning law. She advises and litigates for the industry, project developers, investors and government bodies, and has extensive experience in liaising with the authorities (environmental permission authorities, the SZW inspectorate, and the Human Environment and Transport Inspectorate).
Marloes contributed to the development of the Lex Mundi Global Climate Change Guide. This resource aims to assist in-house lawyers in making sense of the different laws relating to climate change applicable to over 30 jurisdictions. The guide provides in-house counsel with valuable insights on the pace of regional legal climate change, how it affects their role within a company, how legislation in different countries may impact long-term strategy, risk-mitigation analysis, and how front-runners could affect the rest of the world.
In November, the world’s leaders met during the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow to talk about ambitious climate action. In anticipation of the COP26’s outcomes, we hosted our first Climate Risk & Sustainability Weeks.
During this two-week event from 1 November until 12 November our Climate Risk & Sustainability experts hosted webinars and in-person events on different topics regarding the impact of new or changing climate legislation. Our programme reflects the multitude of topics within national and international environmental law.
