Corporate Accountability in International Environmental Law

Elisa Morgera

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues that in the absence of international environmental obligations binding upon multinational corporations, the emergence of legal standards will allow adapting and translating inter-State obligations embodied in international environmental law into specific international criteria to determine the legitimacy of the conduct of the private sector against internationally recognized values and rules. The notion of legal standards is theoretically discussed, in order to provide the most appropriate framework to analyse the normative phenomena related to corporate environmental accountability at the international level.

Keywords:   principles, standards, multinational corporations, inter-state obligations
