Working towards a sustainable future

Global Senior Partner Jeroen Ouwehand speaks about tackling climate change at Green Horizon Summit

"We can choose what we support, and what we don’t support. We do not have to be neutral professional service providers. We must use the power of the law to deliver a sustainable future."

Global Senior Partner Jeroen Ouwehand spoke at the Green Horizon Summit about the link between law and climate change. Delivering the opening remarks virtually, Jeroen outlined the significant role lawyers will play in tackling climate change, as firms help their clients to​ "navigate the conflicting laws​ and regulations across jurisdictions and to anticipate policy and regulatory ​changes including in the area of green finance".
