“Law backed by science is a powerful tool to drive systemic change and ensure that global models of growth do not destabilise the climate or destroy biomes irreversibly. ClientEarth provides the opportunity to develop this tool in the effort to reshape how human activities impact our environment, in order to protect both people and planet.”
