Organisations and their leaders will increasingly face the financial and reputational consequences of climate change inaction, believes Alice Garton, director of global legal strategy at the Foundation for International Law for the Environment (FILE) . Growing up in Australia’s first eco village, she set her sights on using the law to change the world at a young age. She worked for a hard-hitting litigator, spent 14 years in law firms and multinationals before moving to ClientEarth – the first NGO to look at the whole suite of laws that can be applied to combat the climate crisis. In her latest role at FILE, she’s aiming to scale climate litigation across the world. Based on her experience, she explains the future of climate-related litigation for businesses and lawyers to Neil Pearson, Mills & Reeve’s head of ESG and social value.
