The Planetary Trust

The planetary trust: a flawed instrument of intergenerational equity Brown Weiss’s Planetary Trust concept is significant in that it presents a potential instrumental means for facilitating equity between generations. This section begins by outlining Brown Weiss’s Planetary Trust concept, setting it within the context of trust law more generally. It then presents a critique of…

Intergenerational Versus Intra-Generational Equity

Whilst the notions of intergenerational equity and intra-generational equity are not always completely incompatible, the assumption that they are necessarily mutually reinforcing is certainly misguided. The notions of equity as between noncontemporaries and contemporaries can quickly be distinguished. The former requires thought about levels of savings of natural and other assets over time. The latter…

International Legal Sources of Intergenerational Equity

An analysis of the legal sources of intergenerational equity should begin within the broader framework of international environmental law principles. Although the notion of intergenerational justice and the related principle of intergenerational equity are not concerned exclusively with environmental issues, the promotion of intergenerational equity does require, at a fundamental level, the appropriate management of…

V. Nascent Jurisprudence on Intergenerational Equity

Introduction Over the last forty years, environmental law (both internationally and in domestic jurisdictions across the world) has increasingly been required to address the special issues created by geographically and temporally disparate damage and causes. Environmental harm can be long lasting or irreversible, or can remain undiscovered for many years, even after the practices causing…

Uk and Us Pension Fund Governance

The investment industry relies on certain assumptions about how markets work – that markets are relatively efficient, that regulation by the market (rather than governments) is effective, that financial innovation is necessarily beneficial. Following the advent of 2008’s global financial crisis, some of these assumptions are being questioned not only by left-leaning economists, but also…

Fiduciary Duty’s Paradox: Incrementally Flexible

The above section has demonstrated that the uncertainty surrounding pension funds’ obligations with respect to non-financial factors in investment decision-making presents a practical barrier to consideration of environmental factors, including climate change, in both the US and UK context. It is clear that part of the problem is the lack of both current case law…

Pension Fund Fiduciary Duty and Non-Financial Considerations

The fiduciary duties of loyalty and prudence have often been seen as presenting an impediment to the consideration of so-called non-financial factors, in particular ethical, environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in investment strategy. In reality, it would be more appropriate to think of these ‘non-financial factors’ as not-yet-financial factors, thus acknowledging that currently non-financial…

The Trust

This thesis calls upon many areas of law and legal theory. Of these, however, the most essential is the legal notion of the trust. The trust is a particularly valuable concept for analysing, and also for addressing, problems of a long-term or intergenerational nature for two principle reasons. First, the trust has been, from its…

Further Work and Conclusion

Additional directions for this work include refining and extending our cardiac study with a view to clinical implementation. Furthermore, we suggest that rhythmic signals arising from other biological systems may have application for the techniques described in this paper. An investigation of the optimal windowing parameter set would be instructive since our findings suggest the…
