Testimonials 

I’m looking forward to the keynote address of the ICC Court President, Claudia Salomon, as well as hearing about ESG disputes and learning from in-house counsel on how arbitration fits with their needs.

Vice-President
Charles River Associates

I look forward to attending the session on what businesses want from dispute resolution. Businesses desire certainty: they can assist by having a well thought out case supported by relevant documents. This will allow lawyers, experts and ultimately, a tribunal, to work efficiently and cost effectively.

Taking the Temperature on ESG disputes

With the United States rejoining the Paris Agreement and in light of recent pronouncements of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on climate change and environmental, social, and governance (“ESG”) disclosures, there is a new focus in the United States on meeting various environmental commitments, pursuing sustainable investments, and mitigating climate change-related risks.

With renewed attention comes an increased risk of disputes. Industry leaders, in-house counsel, and dispute resolution practitioners will take stock of i) new laws to mitigate climate change, particularly cap-and-trade emissions schemes and ESG requirements; and ii) disputes arising out of those new laws such as those relating to emissions limits and greenwashing. The panel will discuss the role and benefits of arbitration and ADR in resolving ESG and emissions trading disputes, including a prospective role for arbitration under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement, and delve into best practices and lessons learned for the resolution of these disputes and for contract drafting.

What Businesses Want from Dispute Resolution

In this roundtable discussion, in-house counsel and business leaders from companies of various industries will share perspectives on how to better align dispute resolution with the evolving expectations of the business community and what practical measures can be taken by the dispute resolution community and the arbitral process to ensure that their expectations are met. Panelists will notably share success stories and failures while also providing insight as to their needs and current key priorities pertaining to dispute prevention and resolution when negotiating agreements with other businesses or governments. The panelists’ views on a broad range of topics will be solicited, including on dispute avoidance, mediation, diversity and inclusion, and measures to reduce the time, cost and environmental impact of international arbitrations.
