Taking Equity into Account in International and Domestic Legal Frameworks on Compensation for Climate Change and the Energy Transition

Brauch, Martin Dietrich

The valuation of fossil fuel assets and the quantification of compensation amounts under investment treaties and arbitration, as well as under domestic compensation schemes, are hot economic and legal topics in the context of a changing climate, the energy transition, and the mounting risk of climate-related arbitrations by fossil fuel investors to complain against inherently disruptive yet urgent climate policy. Before considering compensation for fossil fuel investors, it is important to reflect on what compensation should mean, from an equity standpoint, in the context of climate change and the energy transition, and the role of international and domestic law in shaping what it means.
