The global challenge

Our planet is changing. Rising carbon emissions are accelerating climate change. Our forests are disappearing. The air we breathe and the oceans we depend on are polluted. Vulnerable plants and animals are under threat.

To meet these global challenges we draw on our unique expertise, using the power of the law to come up with solutions. Thanks to your support, we can fundamentally change the way we live in the world, and protect life on Earth.

The world is changing dramatically, and the crucial years ahead will determine the health of the planet our children will inherit.
