Abstract

Many legal fields are relevant to problems, however decision makers often take a narrow approach, looking only at the base of the claim or the issue they are established to consider. This can led to imbalanced outcomes. There is a particular risk of this in respect of key societal challenges, which might be the subject of law and policymaking from several different perspectives. This paper explores the need and bases for a more integrated approach to decision making. It does so using a case study, and explores the range of laws which can be relevant to a business seeking to use technology and resources which could address climate change, the different decisions which courts can make (with a focus on the nature of the action, outcome and forum), and resulting conflicts, synergies and areas of enquiry.
