Groundsure has launched a training partnership for carriers on climate risk.
The Environmental and Climate Data Agency will provide training and education on Legal Eye’s training academy platform.
The online guide explains the latest guidance from the Law Society and will guide law practitioners on the importance of incorporating climate analysis in their overall environmental search report.
