ABOUT US

Ecocide Law Alliance is a knowledge hub for international ecocide law as a key enabler for a regenerative, 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.” – Karin Bodin, CEO, Polarbrödsgruppen

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.

Our field of operations is global and we invite all business sectors, academia and organizations to join. All we need is a proposal at the International Criminal Court by early August, 2022. With active support from business leaders, this is entirely feasible.

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.

ECOCIDE LAW ALLIANCE

The Ecocide Law Alliance coordinates and assists 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.

"This law creates the bridge to a liveable world"
