Join the Fraser Basin Council on September 28, 2017 for a free webinar and learn about Legal Implications of Climate Change for Professionals.

Event Description: 
With our changing climate, new risks are emerging for infrastructure, the economy, and the environment that can impact public safety and quality of life. Professionals are subject to legal responsibilities and standards of care, which could expose them to legal liability relating to climate impacts and associated damages.
In this webinar, Zizzo Strategy will speak about climate change liability issues with a focus on case law and climate-related litigation related to negligence and class action lawsuits. The webinar will also touch upon recent developments in corporate governance and disclosure of climate risk, including securities disclosure and the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures. This webinar aims to educate professionals on how climate change impacts their professional roles and responsibilities, encourage them to integrate climate change into their decision-making and empower them to make the case for climate change adaptation and mitigation.
