The race is on.
Countries need to take action to stop irreversible damage to the environment. Governments have agreed to put that action into law. Everyone else now has to decide how they respond.
Climate change is of course the dominant issue. How do we heat and power buildings? How do we develop and manage land? How do we move people, goods and services around the globe?
Without a doubt, these are some of the toughest questions for business.
But as environmental lawyers our remit extends beyond climate change to the many other ways human activity affects the natural world – from waterways and forests, to fisheries and wildlife. And as the pace of environmental change races ahead, the evolution of environmental law accelerates too.
That’s why it’s getting harder to keep up. That’s why, as your environmental lawyers, our work cuts across every aspect of your business.
