ECOCIDE LAW ALLIANCE

The Ecocide Law Alliance is a foundation, originally initiated by End Ecocide Sweden to coordinate and assist business support for an ecocide law.

We provide research, communication and networking: writing and publishing reports on key benefits of ecocide law; communicating via webinars and media, and bringing together leaders from a variety of sectors to deepen understanding and encourage action.

OUR MISSION

The Ecocide Law Alliance has a powerful mission for business leaders. To make ecocide an international crime, prosecutable at the International Criminal Court in The Hague.

THE CASE FOR BUSINESS ENGAGEMENT

In the absence of this law, destructive activities directed by a small number of people continue to destroy the living systems we all depend on. The Rome Statute cannot on its own shift societies to a sustainable state, but addressing the worst environmental destruction is a good place to start.

By shifting the baseline, and introducing fundamental protection for nature as part of the equation, conditions for business on planet Earth become more fair, safe and predictable. With a level playing field, markets could actually work as intended.

Ecocide law closes the door to activities that cause mass destruction of ecosystems, and opens a door to innovation and activities that are safe for people and planet. This path holds endless possibilities for a sustainable economy.

In the long term, neither legislators nor consumers will accept products that destroy the planet. If you make adjustments early on, you have a competitive advantage.
