Andrews Dispute Resolution is a signatory to the World Mediators Alliance on Climate Change (WoMACC) Green Pledge. Mediation, as an efficient, effective and ethical process to resolve disputes and other differences, can be implemented to protect our environment through our own behavior and practices as mediators.
I am committed to minimizing the environmental impact of each mediation in which I am involved in the ways outlined in the Pledge, including avoiding unnecessary travel and using electronic technology wherever possible.
Because electronic technology also emits carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, albeit generally significantly less than travel, I am also committed to offsetting such greenhouse emissions via my participation in Tree-Nation’s Offset Website and Plant Trees services using a CO2 Neutral Website label detailed here.
The Green Pledge is broad enough to allow mediators to make changes to their behavior and to lead the way in responsible mediating. It offers a foundation that mediators can build upon with their own further measures tailored to their practices. Andrews Dispute Resolution‘s Services as solely Online Dispute Resolution Services are already postured to successfully fulfill the promise of the Green Pledge, and have been featured on WoMACC’s Green Pledge: Examples in Practice page here.
