As tackling climate change races to the top of the global agenda, I am humbled to work within an organisation at the forefront of driving the financial and corporate sectors towards a more sustainable future. Using the power of the law, together, we can ensure we achieve that transition in a way that will protect the wider economy and society, long-term.
