Paris Agreement

Firms, contract law and the fight against climate change

Abstract: 
The intensifying fight against climate change, reinforced by the Paris Agreement, is contributing to the formation of a new international contractual framework that the contracting parties organise or that they can legitimately expect to see applied, even if they have not provided for it by agreement. Implied duties, failure to comply, requirement of a certain quality of provision of service – be it French or foreign, European or international, contract law is not short of instruments in the fight against climate change.
