With our current changing climate, new risks are emerging for infrastructure, the economy, and the environment that can impact public safety and quality of life. Professionals have a duty to act in the public interest and are subject to legal responsibilities and standards of care, which could expose them to legal liability relating to climate impacts and associated damages if proper standards of prudence are not met. 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. As the climate continues to change, legal duties and standards of care are also evolving. 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.
This webinar is part of the BC Regional Adaptation Collaborative (BC RAC) webinar series.
