Gowling WLG published a prescient article in response to recent commentary and policy developments which suggest that directors have a fiduciary obligation to be informed about, act on, and disclose the risks and opportunities associated with climate change. The article canvasses some of these developments, from tying COVID recovery to climate disclosure to Canadian Securities Administrator guidance, and details the potential implications for corporate directors.
