Abstract

The article advocates for the imposition of liability on parent companies for environmental damage caused by their subsidiaries. The justifications provided are analysed in light of the 2021 decision in Okpabi v Royal Dutch Shell, which discussed many of these issues. It also analyses the 2021 proposal by the Chancery Lane Project regarding what a statutory eco-liability regime would look like.
