WEBINAR: Fighting Climate Change Through Shaming

12:00 PM - 01:30 PM

In an era where governments grapple with the urgent challenge of climate change, a novel approach emerges: regulatory climate shaming.

This webinar invites participants to delve into this concept, which involves regulators publicly conveying information about corporate actions, omissions, decisions, and characteristics that harm our climate. The central objective is to nudge companies toward compliance with climate norms and encourage them to surpass mere adherence. But how does it work? Is it just? And is it already in use elsewhere? These questions fuel our exploration. We’ll examine the potential of shaming firms through innovative informational tools, including labels, rankings, disclosure rules, databases, ratings, and blacklists. These mechanisms, when wielded effectively, could transform climate regulation into a force for positive change. Join us as we unravel the intriguing landscape of regulatory climate shaming.
