ABOUT ECOCIDE

WHAT IS ECOCIDE

Ecocide means unlawful or wanton acts committed with knowledge that there is a substantial likelihood of severe and either widespread or long-term damage to the environment being caused by those acts.

It is destroying nature on which we all depend. It also undermines many sustainable businesses. There is currently no effective way to stop it. Law is missing and only law can fill the gap. 

"You know that what you are doing is damaging the Earth", said barrister Polly Higgins, "so why do you keep doing it?"

"Because it is legal", replied the senior executive.
