Corporate liability in a new setting:
Shell and the changing legal landscape for the multinational oil industry
Legal experts at the Essex Business and Human Rights Project (EBHR) have urged investors to rigorously challenge
oil companies regarding their environmental standards and impact on communities in oil-rich regions such as the Niger Delta.
Corporate liability in a new setting: Shell and the changing legal landscape for the multinational oil industry is the latest report by
researchers in the EBHR. Although it focuses on legal actions taken against Shell, its conclusions could have repercussions for other multinational enterprises.
The independent report has been produced with support from Amnesty International UK and Fair Pensions.
