Ravenscroft & Schmierer Supports Campaign for Greener Arbitrations by Signing ‘The Green Pledge’


Ravenscroft & Schmierer is proud to announce that it now is an institutional supporter of the Campaign for Greener Arbitrations by signing ‘The Green Pledge’.

The Campaign for Greener Arbitrations is an initiative to reduce the environmental footprint of international arbitrations. It was founded in 2019 with the aim of significantly reducing the carbon footprint of the arbitration community. The campaign is made up of a group of arbitration practitioners committed to achieving sustainable change in the way arbitrations are managed. The campaign promotes awareness of the environmental impact of arbitrations and produces best practice guides on ways we all can act to minimise the carbon footprint of our practice.

As an organisation committed to sustainability, Ravenscroft & Schmierer recognises the importance of promoting environmentally responsible practices and reducing its carbon footprint. Signing the Green Arbitration Pledge is a natural extension of this commitment, and a step towards promoting sustainability in the legal industry as a whole.


Litigation partner and Head of Dispute Resolution Anna Lau said: “Ravenscroft & Schmierer already became a shark-free company in 2022, showing our commitment to sustainability. We encourage and implemented many of the initiatives promoted by the Campaign for Greener Arbitrations and as a result we were thrilled to sign the Green Arbitration Pledge and join the global effort towards a more sustainable future. We are proud to be part of this initiative and look forward to further promoting sustainable arbitration practices in all our proceedings."

There are various strategies to reduce the environmental impact of arbitration; for instance, choosing videoconferencing instead of traveling, or sending digital documents rather than hard copies. Ravenscroft & Schmierer is committed to becoming more environmentally friendly, in particular when resolving disputes by arbitration.
