The Carbon Boomerang: Litigation Risk as a Driver and Consequence of the Energy Transition

September 2017: The Carbon Boomerang report analyses the nature of claims within each category, along with an overview of relevant cases. It also provides specific, additional analysis of securities fraud and misleading disclosure laws following the recent release of the Final Recommendations of the G20 Financial Stability Board’s Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (‘TCFD’).
