Climate change is a global issue of great significance to government, business, non-government organisations, communities and individuals.
Our Climate Change Expertise
Successfully managing carbon emissions and reporting, future proofing portfolios, projects and decisions, and early identification of potential litigation risks is essential. Climate science, economics, law and policy is a complex and ever evolving area and there is a global trend of increasing climate-related litigation. This hub will help you keep on top of key climate change-related developments in Australia and identify when you might need assistance.
We can help you assess and manage legal and policy risks associated with climate change in every day operations and specific projects, as well as identify potential opportunities in the transition to a sustainable, low carbon economy.
