Climate change-related risks present an ever-increasing challenge to the fossil fuel industry as domestic and international support for reducing and mitigating the effects of greenhouse gas emissions becomes more mainstream. This growing support heightens potential legal issues, including climate change attribution, reporting and regulation. Disputes over “who should pay” and how quickly reduction in emissions should occur are on the rise. In addition, investors are becoming more active in demanding climate change policies and disclosures, despite no SEC guidance in this area. With the U.S. House of Representatives’ new Democratic majority, we are seeing climate change-related legislation, such as the “Green New Deal” and congressional hearings on the issue of climate change. With this backdrop, it is crucial that businesses stay abreast of the latest climate change developments.
Join King & Spalding for our Energy Forum, Focus on Climate Change: Disputes, Enforcement and Reporting, a half-day session where industry experts and key players will discuss how to prepare for these growing climate-change related risks.
