Business must transition to more climate-friendly practices. Civil litigation is already being used to make corporations and governments take action on climate. But could a new international crime of Ecocide address the problem at source? We examine how business is adapting and consider established and new legal approaches for guiding businesses as they transition to more sustainable behaviours.
