Global Launch ICC Report: NY Edition - Resolving Climate Change Disputes

21 Jan 2020

New York English

ICC’s Commission on Arbitration and ADR is about to release a Report that explores how arbitration and other dispute resolution services are currently used to resolve climate change related disputes. 

The Report entitled “Resolving Climate Change Related Disputes Through Arbitration and ADR” defines climate change related disputes and uses hypothetical case studies to demonstrate the potential circumstances in which climate change related disputes may arise. It offers guidance on specific features to effectively resolve climate change related disputes and includes sample wording for parties to be taken into consideration and where appropriate on a case-by-case basis.                                                                                 

Climate Action is Everyone’s Business: 2019 is a pivotal year in the development of global climate policy with the UN seeking to raise ambition of commitments from states and other actors in line with the imperative to limit global warming to 1.5°C. ICC is committed to help raise ambition of climate action by business; encourage governments to review their nationally determined contributions upwards; provide input on enabling policy frameworks; and engage global ICC network to mobilize business action at scale.

Who should attend?

This programme will benefit practising lawyers, in-house counsel, arbitrators, academics, dispute resolution experts, NGO representatives, business and industry groups who have an interest in climate change and international commercial arbitration, the ICC procedure, and wish to deepen their practical knowledge and share their views with international practitioners.
