On Earth Day 2021, we are proud to announce that our Global International Arbitration Group has become an institutional supporter of the Campaign for Greener Arbitrations. The Group has also signed the Campaign’s ‘Green Pledge’, committing to take individual and collective action to reduce the carbon footprint of international arbitration. Read the Campaign for Greener Arbitrations’ Guiding Principles.

Global Practice Group Leader Alex Bevan, who has joined the Steering Committee of the Campaign, comments that “Our global team is committed to making the entire arbitral process more efficient for our clients and more environmentally and socially responsible, and this includes actively promoting best practices in international arbitration when acting as counsel or as arbitrator, being at the forefront of thought leadership initiatives such as the Campaign, and reducing waste where we can. We are delighted to add our institutional and personal support to the Campaign.”
