Castrén & Snellman Joins Climate Leadership Council

We are expanding our efforts to develop responsible business practices by joining the Climate Leadership Council (CLC). The Climate Leadership Council is a forum for Finnish forerunner companies aiming to find solutions for global environmental challenges—the core issue being the climate change, which is also the biggest business opportunity of our time.

Making use of business opportunities and preventing climate change call for innovative legal solutions. Our membership in the CLC supports our mission to help our clients succeed in a rapidly changing world.

‘Climate change is inevitable. We want to do what we can to maintain the value of our plate for our children. The Climate Leadership Council brings together pioneers in the field. Together we can take concrete actions for the environment’, says Merja Kivelä, chair of Castrén & Snellman’s board.

In 2009, Castrén & Snellman became the first law firm in Finland to receive the WWF’s Green Office certificate. We are already a member of the FIBS Corporate Responsibility Network, a leading non-profit corporate responsibility network in Finland, and Finsif, Finland's Sustainable Investment Forum.
