About the Event

Climate Change Series: What Lawyers need to know (3): Key Considerations for Corporate & Commercial and Banking & Finance Lawyers

With an eye on where climate change or emissions trading scheme (ETS) issues might arise, or where sustainable finance can play a role, the third session of the five-part Climate Change series focuses on what corporate & commercial lawyers, and banking & finance lawyers need to know about carbon law matters.

The presenters provide an overview of the ETS, and provide insights around which types of clients may be affected by the ETS and wider carbon issues, and how they may be impacted.

The session also includes consideration of infrastructure and the role of sustainable finance in helping to capitalise the transition towards a net zero position. Relatable case studies assist attendees to recognise where climate change-related input is required.


Learning outcomes:

  • Consolidate your understanding of the emissions trading scheme (ETS): what it is, who it affects, and how it’s changing.
  • Become aware of where climate change or ETS issues might arise for your clients.
  • Benefit from case studies on a range of industries, which will highlight the climate change input (issues and risks) in relation to common corporate transactions.
  • In respect of commercial agreements/arrangements, become apprised of the nature and flavour of advice required, such as the passing-on of carbon liabilities and carbon costs.
  • Become aware of what sustainable finance is and its role in capitalising the transition towards a net zero carbon economy.
  • Become aware of the legal considerations to take into account when assisting your clients with sustainable finance matters.
  • Gain insights into what’s ahead, and what that means for advising clients, as we move towards net zero.

Who should view:

Those who practise in corporate and commercial and banking and finance law, including general practitioners, in-house counsel and those in central and local government.
