Insurance broker and advisory services provider WTW has formed a new partnership with law firm Clyde & Co to help clients manage climate risks.
As part of the cooperation, WTW will provide Clyde & Co’s expertise in climate legal and risk management as part of its offering of climate analytics and consultancy.
The combined offering is expected to assist companies in better understanding and managing the risks associated with climate liabilities and in taking advantage of the possibilities that climate change presents.
WTW Climate & Resilience Hub climate liability lead Nadine Coudel said: “The collaboration will further broaden our relationship with Clyde & Co, developed over a number of years.
“We will be able to give our clients unprecedented access to regulatory and risk advice in the course of their ESG journeys, pairing WTW’s world-leading consulting expertise and capabilities in delivering climate risk analytics with Clyde & Co’s renowned and globally integrated team of climate liability experts.”
The collaboration, which expands on the companies’ existing partnership, will specifically focus on analysing current climate liability risks, planning for legal responses to climate change, and assessing present climate contracts to identify high-risk contract hotspots.
