Around the world, citizens and non-governmental organizations are filing more and more lawsuits against governments and companies. More and more often, the courts are agreeing with them, as was recently the case in the U.S. state of Montana, giving a foretaste of the increasing risk of lawsuits for companies. KPMG Law experts Isabelle Knoche and Jasmin Runge discuss how companies can protect themselves against climate claims in the current issue of ESGZ (10/2023, p. 31 ff.).
