D&O exposures to climate change risk – a Legalign Global white paper

In the wake of COP26 and the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s report, climate change risks continue to make headlines around the world.

An increasingly concerning issue is the rise of D&O liability exposures related to climate change. In this white paper, Legalign Global member firms, including Wotton + Kearney authors Charu Stevenson, Michael Cavanaugh and Alana Lathrope, look at the causes of exposure, regulatory and legal developments around the world, and the implications for D&O insurers in this space.

The paper also provides jurisdictional snapshots of the regulatory and legal developments in D&O climate-related risk for Australia, Canada, France, Germany, New Zealand, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States.
