Integrity in climate action: a global challenge – Roundtable

29 November @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Hybrid Event
For online participation register here

Addressing poor integrity and corruption in climate change solutions becomes increasingly important in face of the need for a swift and decisive transition to a low-carbon economy. In the past year, awareness of such risks was fuelled by a spate of media reports on fraud in carbon credit markets and bribery in permitting of renewable energy projects.

A range of societal actors are working to mitigate the climate crisis. However, without proper safeguards against corruption and practices characterised by poor integrity, there is a risk that the resources required for the delivery of climate solutions will be diverted away from the pursuit of genuine progress.

This event brings together experts in climate, environmental and human rights law to explore how we can address these emerging challenges and help ensuring that the transition is delivered in a credible and just way. We will start by providing an overview of corruption and integrity risks in climate solutions, based on a report from the Grantham Research Institute. The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion with four distinguished experts in the field: Dr. Marie Petersmann (LSE Law School), Dr. Jolene Lin (National University of Singapore), Shirley Pouget (DLA Piper), and a representative from Global Witness.
