The Ecocide Law Alliance has a powerful mission for business leaders. To make ecocide an international crime, prosecutable at the International Criminal Court.
ECOCIDE LAW ALLIANCE
The Ecocide Law Alliance Foundation was formed in 2022. Our aim is to work for the introduction of the crime of ecocide in the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court and to promote the ratification process, the work of the International Criminal Court, and other subsequent processes or measures related to monitoring and compliance when introducing the crime of ecocide.
We bring together and mobilize forward-looking businesses who want to create conditions for fair competition within the planetary boundaries and promote sustainable business. We do this by increasing the knowledge and benefits of international law against ecocide, and by mobilizing the business sector to support the proposal that ecocide be added as a fifth crime in the Rome Statute, prosecutable in the International Criminal Court.
The board consists of Nina Macpherson (chair),
Inger Brattne, Anna Surtevall and Caroline Mofors.
