Supporting Innovative Responses to Climate Change

Shearman & Sterling is committed to doing our part to confront climate change.

In a major pro bono effort, Shearman & Sterling recently assisted The Nature Conservancy, one of the world’s leading conservation organizations, in its innovative transaction under the “Blue Bonds for Ocean Conservation” program with the Government of Belize to reduce its debt and provide funding for marine conservation.

In addition to this pro bono work, we are proud to support the work of our clients around the world on impactful projects involving hydrogen, battery storage, social bonds, carbon capture, coal decommissioning and critical minerals for low carbon products.
