Norton Rose Fulbright’s 2024 Annual Litigation Trends Survey reveals that environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues are a growing litigation concern.

As regulatory requirements around climate and ESG disclosures take shape while anti-ESG sentiment grows, organizations are increasingly finding themselves caught in the middle.

One in 10 respondents experienced ESG-related litigation last year (compared to just 2% in 2022) – a development we anticipated in our 2023 Annual Litigation Trends Survey report.

Thirty-eight percent of organizations are also concerned about future ESG class actions as issues such as greenwashing, diversity policies and regulatory compliance, go under the microscope.
