Climate Change Litigation: Insights into the evolving global landscape

Authors: Maryam Golnaraghi, Joana Setzer, Nigel Brook, Wynne Lawrence and Lucia Williams

As evidence of climate change mounts and the world transitions to net zero, climate liability risks are evolving, too, with climate-related litigation cases increasing in number and expanding in both scope and geography.

Our two reports on climate litigation provide an analysis of the climate change litigation landscape and the impact of this growing global phenomenon.

The first report in the series and accompanying summary are publicly available for download, below.

The second report, Climate Change Litigation: Classification and implications for insurers, is exclusively for representatives of Geneva Association member companies. Request to receive the report by emailing
