Working towards
Greener Litigation,
one case at a time

Greener Litigation is an initiative to reduce the environmental impact of dispute resolution.

It is the home of the Greener Litigation Pledge, a commitment to action by solicitors' firms, barristers' chambers and other disputes professionals.
It is also home to the Associate Member Pledge, an opportunity for corporates to support Greener Litigation.

Our objectives

On 27 June 2019, the UK became the first country to pass laws to end its contribution to global warming by 2050, with the target of reducing its greenhouse gas emissions to net zero.

Greener Litigation’s principal objective is to support the courts and court users in becoming carbon neutral (and ultimately carbon negative) and to encourage lasting change in litigation practice. Its initial focus was on the courts of England and Wales, but since its launch in 2021, there has been growing international interest to join and grow the initiative.
