Weiterführende Informationen

People all over the world are asking themselves how the world and their environment will look like after the severe shock caused by pandemic. However, it is not just because of Corona but also because of worldwide challenges, e.g. climate change, shortage of resources or a growing world population. Questions arising in this context relate to almost all aspects of our day-to-day life as we knew it. This is reason enough for Luther as one of the leading German business law firms to try to get to the bottom of the challenges to face in this complex international context. We will touch on and discuss hot topics including technology, supply chain organisation, life sciences or human rights and environmental arbitration.
We are delighted to invite you to share with us and some exquisite panelists in a series of webinars ideas and views from around the globe how economies tackle the massive challenges of our generation and the generations to come.

Welcome to Luther International Conference - THE FUTURE STARTS NOW !

Recent International Trends in Human Rights and Environmental Disputes

16 June 2021, 4 p.m. till 5.30 p.m. CEST
Claims against big corporations based on international law, whether connected to climate change and environmental matters or human rights violations by suppliers, are on the rise (e.g. climate change claim of a Peruvian farmer against RWE; Congolese child cobalt mining lawsuit against major US tech companies). In addition, some legislators have introduced different degrees of legal responsibility for compliance with international human rights law in the supply chain. The panel members will discuss the impact of these recent trends on international businesses and the chances resulting from it.
