In his International Environmental Law column, Stephen L. Kass, a partner at Carter Ledyard & Milburn, asks: To what extent are multinational corporations bound by international standards of conduct relating to the environment? If a corporation violates international standards, who is entitled to enforce them and in which courts? If U.S. federal (or state) courts are asked to adjudicate claims of environmental injury arising from corporate conduct abroad that violates international norms, how should those courts respond?
