The 5th Oxford Business Law Blog Annual Conference: “Business Law and the Transition to a Net Zero Carbon Economy” is a three-day event to discuss the challenges of business law in supporting the path towards a more sustainable economy.

As the world-wide implementation of policies committed to decarbonise the economy gains momentum, this year’s Annual Conference focuses on the role of corporate governance in such an epochal socio-economic transition. Exploring issues ranging from climate risk disclosure and carbon commitments credibility to the exit vs voice debate and climate change in boards, the event provides a forum for scholars of business law to discuss how to tackle the questions raised by the transition to a net zero carbon economy.

Taking place between 25 and 27 May (1-3pm BST), the conference will bring together leading scholars from the fields of economics, corporate law, contract law, environmental law, financial regulation and social responsibility and introduce perspectives from the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Singapore, Australia and the USA.

This conference is part of the Oxford-Martin Initiative on a Net Zero Recovery and is co-hosted by the Oxford Sustainable Law Programme, in collaboration with the Universität Hamburg, Freie Universität Berlin, National University of Singapore, and the European Corporate Governance Institute.
