ESG Litigation – Key legal considerations
ESG Litigation – Key legal considerations
Recent regulatory developments indicate that the ESG trend has acquired a more formal position in European and national law. With this increased importance of ESG aspects of doing business, it is expected that more and more ESG-related litigation will be presented to courts by a large variety of parties. For that reason Loyens & Loeff has developed this brochure dedicated to a selection of topics to help you navigate through this new landscape of rules.
