Monitoring and Analysis of Environmental Legislation and Case -Law

The subject-specific Database on Environmental Legislation and Case Law (DEL&CL) constitutes an innovative tool for legal research and analysis which has been developed in-house. Environmental legislation and case law are monitored using the subject-specific DEL&CL. The DEL&CL includes more than 5,000 legislative acts, international conventions, directives, important court decisions and numerous legal opinions on specific legal issues.

The Database provides detailed legal support for developing the Group’s Environmental Policy, ensuring compliance with applicable environmental legislation, including climate commitments. The Database also facilitates the Bank’s proactive response to regulatory developments in the fields of environment and sustainability.

Emphasis is placed on climate-related court decisions, on the measures to be taken by states and companies to reduce GHG emissions, and on the duty of companies for climate-related risk disclosure.
