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.

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. The initial objective of Greener Litigation was to support the courts and court users of England and Wales to play an important role in achieving that commitment, and encourage lasting change in litigation practice both within the UK and around the world. Since its launch, there has been growing international interest to join and grow the initiative.
