Lunch Seminar with Andreas Hoesli
Climate Change and Corporations – From Greenwashing to Legally Binding Rules
Andreas Hoesli (PhD Fellow at the University of Zurich, Switzerland) is conducting a visiting research stay at the Centre for International Law and Governance (CILG).
As part of his stay at our faculty, Andreas will present his research on “Climate Change and Corporations – From Greenwashing to Legally Binding Rules" over lunch (bring your own) on Thursday 29 October 2020 (12:00 – 13:00) at meeting room 6B-4-04.
Andreas' PhD project addresses the recent rise of private climate governance, in particular with respect to corporations' responsibilities. Given that the negotiations at the intergovernmental level (UNFCCC) have arguably reached a stalemate, this research analyses current international “soft law" developments such as the work done by the G20 Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), and ultimately dissects pathways to legally binding rules for corporations to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.
